Tree Trimming for a Healthy Tree

Tree trimming service can help you keep your property and loved ones safe from fallen branches. After a few branches fell in Bryant Park (a local Manhattan park) last week, we are advising all homeowners to take a few minutes and read our guide to avoiding falling trees. Although nobody was hurt, fallen branches cause severe damage to innocent civilians and personal property every year.

How can you tell if a tree branch is about to fall?

There are many signs that a tree is not healthy or becoming very week. For instance, if a tree branch looks lifeless, with no leaves during its bloom season the branches are likely to break off soon. Tarzan Tree Removal Service usually looks at these four areas when inspecting the safety of a tree.

Tree Overall Appearance: From a distance take a look at your tree check to see if it is leaning in a certain direction, missing areas of leaves or large dead branches. 

Trunk: A trunk is the main support of a tree, holding up its weight and branches. Check to see if the trunk appears to have any type of fungus, dead bark, cracks or insects.

Roots: A tree is held up by its root system underground that serve as its is anchorage and support, as it provides all the water and nutrients. If a rot rots or decays a tree can fall at any given moment, which is a frightening factor in owning a tree. To check if the roots are healthy you are going to have to look at the surrounding ground area. Move away any leaves or ivy at the base and check to see if there is any fungal growth (e.g. fungal growth), cracked or raised soil where trunk meets the ground or insects at the base of the true.

Canopy (upper layer of tree): Dead wood on a tree is one of the key signs to checking its health – check is there are dead branches don’t have leaves or are missing bark.

Here is what you need to grow your own lemon tree indoors.

Warm and Bright

Lemon trees, like other citrus, thrive in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 9 through 11. The heating system of the average home, supplemented by extra humidity, provides the warm temperatures that lemons need to grow and produce fruit. Many gardeners take their potted trees outside to enjoy a vacation in summer, after temperatures rise above 55 degrees Fahrenheit at night and 70 degrees during the day.

To produce flowers and fruit, lemon trees require full sun for eight to 12 hours daily. Supplement natural light with grow lights on a timer to encourage the tree to bloom.

Soil and Fertilizer

Lemon trees need a loose potting mix with a pH between 5.5 and 6.5. A potting mix formulated for citrus, or a homemade potting mix made of equal parts compost, peat moss and perlite, provides a well-drained soil for a lemon tree. Plant the tree in a flowerpot or planter between 14 and 24 inches in diameter and with a drain hole.

Apply a water-soluble 30-10-10 citrus fertilizer or azalea and camellia fertilizer to the tree every seven to 14 days. Mix 1/2 teaspoon of water with 1 gallon of water. Water the tree, and then add the fertilizer solution until it drains from the bottom of the planter. If citrus or azalea fertilizers are not available, a general-purpose 2-1-1 or 3-1-1 fertilizer with added iron will also nourish the lemon tree.

Water and Humidity

Lemon trees require regular watering. Water the tree whenever the soil in the flowerpot is dry to a depth of 2 inches. Add water until it drains from the hole in the bottom of the pot, but don’t let the plant stand in water. Add humidity to the air by placing the flowerpot on a tray filled with pebbles and water and then grouping houseplants together. A cool steam vaporizer placed next to the lemon tree also raises the humidity around the tree. Avoid placing the lemon tree directly in front of heating and air conditioning vents; the air is too dry.

Thorns, Pollen and More

While most dwarf lemon varieties have relatively few thorns, wear gloves and safety goggles to protect your skin and eyes from accidental puncture wounds, fertilizer and compost when working around the tree. Trim the tree as needed with anvil pruners to shape and reduce its size, making sure to sterilize the pruners with a solution of equal parts rubbing alcohol and water. Suckers growing rapidly from the base of the trunk and water sprouts rising from the branches should be trimmed back immediately.

Lemon trees are self-pollinating, but some gardeners hand-pollinate indoor trees for a larger harvest. A small paintbrush swirled inside each blossom distributes the pollen from one flower to the next.
