The current extreme dry conditions in Australia and in other parts of the world is causing problems for everyone. Unfortunately, the trees are also suffering from a lack of water, trees absorb their nutrients to thrive through water and without enough they are at risk of a whole host of problems including being vulnerable to disease and pest attacks.
Always water trees before other plants or lawns as trees take decades to replace, whereas grass and smaller plants can be re-established relatively quickly. Trees also have the advantage of providing huge benefits to homes such as shade (helping to keep homes cool in summer and warm in winter), as stormwater sponges, adding value and course all of the many health benefits.
Unfortunately, the effects of drought can last for quite a few years even if consequently the tree receives enough water. Future buds may be poorly formed and of small size and the twig growth may also be limited. If your tree is severely stressed, it is always best to consult a qualified Arborist for expert advice on the best ways to try an rectify the problems that have been caused. Arborists will be able to advise on the best organic fertilisers to use, whether a root plate injection will help the tree.
For trees to remain healthy they need to be well looked after and pruned to Australian standards. Money invested in trees is never wasted money!
