Tree Services Las Vegas – Fertilizing

Newly Planted TreesTree fertilizing is usually not necessary the first year after planting a tree. Sometimes a nutrient deficiency exists which can be found through soil testing or when symptoms are seen in the tree. In this instance proper fertilizing will benefit the tree. A tree service can advise you on what is best for your individual tree.

Fertilizing can be detrimental

If a new tree absorbs large quantities of nutrients it will respond with too much growth of new shoots instead of developing a good root system. Newly planted trees need to develop this root system to provide proper support for the tree, to absorb enough water, and to find nutrients in the soil. Avoiding unnecessary fertilizing will allow the tree to grow at a proper rate, with healthy roots and the amount of new growth that the roots can support.

Nevada Tree, a tree service in Las Vegas, knows the signs when trees need fertilizing. They can advise you on the best way to care for your trees including the right fertilizer.

Tree Pruning- Newly Planted Trees

Tree PruningPruning a newly planted tree should be done with caution and only when absolutely necessary. New trees need their leaves to photosynthesize. Removing the leaves or stems can harm a trees ability to thrive. Some pruning might be necessary to fix the trees structure. Broken branches, crossing and rubbing stems are examples of problems that should be fixed with pruning.

Tips for Tree Pruning

  • Tree pruning should not be done until you have fully inspected the tree. Before making any cuts, inspect from the top of the tree to the bottom.
  • Keep tools sharp.
  • For high branches use a pole pruner, or call a professional tree service. In the Las Vegas area call Nevada Tree at 702-433-4700.
  • Don’t prune more than 1/4 of a trees crown in a single year.
  • When shortening a branch make the cut about 1/4 inch from a bud that will grow in an outward direction.

For major pruning jobs on large trees it is best to be safe and have the work done by a professional. If you have any questions contact Nevada Tree at 702-433-4700.

Staking newly planted trees should be avoided if possible. There are benefits to staking a tree, but they usually do not outweigh the consequences. During the first year after a tree is planted, it is crucial for a strong root structure to develop. Trees that are not staked but allowed to sway in the wind respond by producing roots in appropriate number and sizes to handle the wind.

There are exceptions to this rule. In very windy areas it may be necessary to stake a tree. If this is the case they should be tied loosely to the stake allowing an inch or two of room to sway. Also, a wide strip of material that won’t hurt the tree should be used so as not to damage the trunk. Good materials include old T-shirts, canvas, or rubber inner tubes. Wire or other such materials can do a lot of damage if they dig into the trunk of the tree. The stake should be removed after the first year to allow roots to further develop. A professional tree service will be able to help you assess your trees and stake them if needed.

If are in the Las Vegas area and have questions about staking trees, contact Nevada Tree at 702-433-4700.

Tree

There are many reasons for tree removal in Las Vegas. The harsh weather can make it hard for trees to thrive without proper care. Technical felling is the term tree services use to describe the many ways crews use to get wood on the ground where they want it and when each and every time. Training is required to make sure trees, or sections of trees, fall where the crew wants during a removal. It is very dangerous to try to remove a tree or part of a tree on your own without this knowledge. If you have a tree you would like trimmed or removed it is always best to contact a tree service in your area to remove it safely.
