What It Means To Care for a Tree

There is popular saying that goes, “you have lived a life if you have planted a tree, written a book and sired a son”. And because not everyone can write and not everyone is gifted with a son, the one thing that everyone can do is plant a tree. But planting a tree is just half the job. You need to ensure that the seed that you planted will grow and flourish into a tree which, if cared well, can outgrow you and be a source of joy for you and your family.

Trees need caring. You need to make sure that they are pruned so that they grow to their desired height and that do not interfere with other trees or structures in your property. You need to ensure that their roots have enough space to grow. Planting a tree near a paved area might cause damage or cracks to the concrete when the roots expand. You also have to tend to the falling leaves, which, if they find their way to downspouts or drains, might cause clogs and damage to your property. Old trees can also be a cause of potential danger as their weakened root system might cause for it to fall and destroy lives and property. These are just some of the many things that you need to pay attention to when you have trees in your property.
