Ways To Care For Your Trees When it is Hot

As the summer comes to an end, we have seen some unimaginably hot temperatures here in the south of the United Kingdom. Consider how your trees might be feeling during these days of constant intense sunlight.

Here are some top tips for ensuring your trees can withstand these heatwaves, which we are warned will become more common.

Should I water my trees on a regular basis?

Trees, like flowers and plants, are living organisms that surround your home. Very similar to you, your family, and your pets. They, too, will require whatever amount of water they have during normal weather. If you have dried out trees that are showing signs of drying out, there are a few things to consider. In this case, make sure to provide your trees with the water they require. It may be tempting to overwater them during the mid-summer heatwave, but this is a bad idea. Newly planted and young trees, for example, require twice the normal amount of water. More mature trees will withstand dry spells longer, but you may still need to water them.

Find them some shade if at all possible.

You’d feel much better if you sat in the shade with a tall glass of ice cold lemonade and the latest best-selling novel. Your trees would appreciate some shade as well. This is only possible if you have small, young trees that you can shade with a large gazebo or an umbrella. You can protect their leaves and crowns in this manner. However, once the intense heat has passed, you’ll have to remove all of the extra shade you’ve provided. Overall, trees that have suffered from dryness will need time to recover and change. Most of the time, especially with older trees, they will return to their former glory.

Maintaining General Tree Maintenance

Finally, you should ensure that every tree you own is well cared for. Your trees will be much healthier than those that have been left if they have been well cared for and regularly maintained. This gives them a much better chance in adverse weather conditions, such as high winds or heat.
