Smartscape tree care guide

Fall and winter are the best time to plant trees, since they don’t suffer from transplant shock as much as summer planted trees. Cardiac arteries and veins Trees need the opportunity to grow roots before being subjected to summer heat and dryness. Function of arteries and veins In this section we will attempt to outline the primary maintenance considerations for planting and growing trees. The difference between arteries and veins Fertilizer

During the first growing season, don’t fertilize with high nitrogen fertilizer.


Arteries and veins in the body Use root stimulators (monthly during growing season) or slow release organic fertilizer at half the recommended rate. Difference between arteries and veins and capillaries During the second growing season, fertilize 3-4 times a year using a slow release fertilizer.

Never use a herbicide containing fertilizer anywhere near the tree’s root system! Location and Planting

Plant a tree half its potential spread away from any structure. Major arteries and veins of the heart Do not plant over underground utilities. Comparison of arteries and veins Dig the bottom of the hole a few inches in diameter larger than the root ball. Main veins and arteries Dig the depth of the hole the same as the depth of the root ball. Blood arteries and veins Place the tree in the hole so the top of the soil root ball is at least at the soil line or slightly higher. Veins and arteries in legs Trees settle after being watered.

Water the plant, water the hole, water the plant in the hole.

“Water the plant, water the hole, water the plant in the hole” is an effective rule of thumb when transplanting. Difference of veins and arteries Watering the new plant before removing it from its container helps the soil stick to the roots while ensuring that the root ball is well-irrigated and all the available roots have moisture. What are the differences between arteries and veins Watering your newly dug hole allows you to check for any drainage problems that you might need to correct, ensures that the surrounding soil is moist, and reduces the possibility of water being wicked away from the new plant’s root ball into surrounding soil. Veins and arteries of the heart Watering the plant in the hole after it has been transplanted helps the root ball and surrounding soil to settle and reduces the number of air pockets.

Do not allow the tree to settle lower than the original soil line. Veins and arteries difference Fill the hole with the same soil removed from the hole. Arteries veins and capillaries structure If you fill the hole with amended soil, the roots will not want to leave the hole. Heart arteries and veins Pruning

Selective pruning should be performed after the first growing season. Size of arteries veins and capillaries Prune during the December 15 to February 1 time frame. Major veins and arteries Especially don’t prune oaks from February 1 through June 1 due to oak wilt problems. What is the main difference between arteries and veins A properly dug and planted tree needs no pruning except to remove broken branches and growth faults (crossing branches and downward growing).

Lower branches should be left on the tree as long as possible. Arteries and veins model After the first year, no more than 1 whirl of limbs should be removed each year. Leg veins and arteries The use of pruning paints (except on oak trees) is not recommended. Arteries and veins function Watering and Mulching

Water the newly planted tree until the hole is soaked. Human arteries and veins diagram This will saturate the roots. Carotid arteries and jugular veins Water, as needed, for at least 18 months by placing a soaker hose around the base of the tree and slowly (several hours) saturate the area. Arteries veins and capillaries differences Do not depend on a sprinkler system to do the job. Human arteries and veins model Usually you need to water when the soil has dried to a depth of 4-6 inches. Major veins and arteries of the body An easy way to test soil wetness is by probing with an 18-inch piece of iron rebar. Arteries and veins diagram If the rebar is wet or muddy, do not water. Veins arteries and capillaries If the probe comes out dry or damp on the end, its time to water. How many veins and arteries are in the human body During a hot, dry summer, check the soil every 4-5 days. How are arteries and veins different It is equally important that you do not over-water a native or adapted tree.

Place mulch over the area of disturbed earth, leaving a few bare inches around the trunk. Heart veins and arteries diagram Mulch will help soil retain moisture while also preventing soil compacting by keeping lawnmowers, etc. Main arteries and veins away from the root area. What is veins and arteries During the first year, add mulch 3-4 times.

For additional information, refer to the watering and conservation and the mulch sections.

The following video is from the Sustainable Landscape Series from the City of Allen and covers proper tree care, including the best varieties, watering and maintenance.

A native or adapted tree will tolerate North Central Texas’ long hot summers, the occasional cold winter and alkaline soil. Arteries and veins in the arm Trees grown in others parts of the country may not thrive, or even survive, here due to these factors. How and why arteries and veins differ in structure Non-adapted trees can have a very short life span, problems with insects, diseases and/or leaf drop.

A native or adapted tree will tolerate North Central Texas’ long hot summers, the occasional cold winter and alkaline soil. Arteries and veins of the arm Trees grown in others parts of the country may not thrive, or even survive, here due to these factors. Arteries and veins of human body Non-adapted trees can have a very short life span, problems with insects, diseases and/or leaf drop.

Be careful about damaging the bark while moving the tree. How do arteries and veins differ The vascular system (similar to our own veins and arteries) of a tree is directly under the bark. What is the difference between artery and vein Since a young tree has thin bark, it is very easily damaged. What are arteries and veins If the damage is severe the tree will die because it lost its ability to transport water/nutrients from the roots to the stems and leaves.

Avoid damage by transporting it in a manner that keeps the trunk bark from rubbing or hitting any surfaces in the vehicle and by carrying the tree by the container, not the trunk.

#7 The wire used to stake or label the tree was never removed.

Remove all tags from the tree. Differentiate between arteries and veins Keep the tags, with the planting date, for your records. Veins and arteries in the arm Do not stake a tree unless necessary. Major arteries and veins of the body Most trees don’t require staking unless the tree is located in a windy area. Arteries and veins and capillaries Cover the staking wire that contacts the trunk or limbs with pieces of garden hose or similar material so the wire doesn’t cut into the tree. Arm veins and arteries Remove the stakes and wire in 6 months to a year. Arteries and veins to kidneys If left around a tree or limb, a wire can girdle a tree, which cuts off the supply of water and nutrients.

Plant the tree so the root ball sits firmly on the bottom of the hole with the top of the root ball even with the surrounding soil or slightly higher. Arteries and veins of heart It is important that you don’t plant the tree too deep. Structural difference between veins and arteries Start by digging the hole the same depth as the root ball. Color of veins and arteries Then dig the width of the hole at least twice the width of the root ball. What do veins and arteries do After placing the tree in the hole, fill the void with the original soil (after removing any rocks or debris). Pictures of veins and arteries Water thoroughly to settle the soil and tree. What do arteries and veins do Cover the exposed earth with 6″- 8″ of bark mulch right up to, but not touching, the trunk.

Select a healthy tree. What connects arteries and veins Check the tree for any splits in the bark, broken branches, insects and healthy white roots. Blood vessels arteries and veins If it is possible to inspect the roots of a tree before purchase, do not buy the tree if the tree has encircling roots. Veins and arteries of the leg However, if the tree has been purchased with encircling roots, spread the roots before planting or cut through them. Arteries and veins worksheet New roots will grow where you cut the circling roots. Arteries and veins of the heart If left untouched, circling roots could eventually girdle the tree and strangle it.

A tree trunk hit by a string trimmer and/or lawn mower will lose part of the vascular system. What is the difference between veins and arteries If the tree is hit too often, the tree will die. Name two ways that veins and arteries are different Keep a thick layer of bark mulch around the tree. Arteries and veins structure This cuts down on evaporation of water from the root zone, moderates the soil temperature, helps control weeds and keeps the trimmer and mower away from the trunk.

Keep the tree watered until you plant it. How to tell the difference between veins and arteries Many a tree has over dried while it waited for the end of football/hockey/basketball season. Arteries and veins slides Place the tree in the landscape where you want to plant it. How are arteries veins and capillaries different This will help acclimate it to the light and wind. Difference between arteries and veins Most container grown trees need water every day during the heat of the summer.

Don’t transport a tree in the back of a truck, sticking out of a car window or a car trunk without covering the tree. Arteries and veins of the head and neck Cover it with a bed sheet or similar cover. What is the major difference between arteries and veins If not covered, the wind will dehydrate leaves and small limbs. Heart veins and arteries As a result, the tree may drop its leaves later.

#1 Lack of water or over-watering during the first 18 months.

And the #1 killer of newly planted trees…. Veins and arteries diagram is lack of water or over-watering during the first 18 months. Arteries and veins of the body It usually takes at least that long for tree roots to become established and help the tree survive hot, dry North Central Texas summers. Body arteries and veins During this time, use the soil wetness test on a weekly basis to guide your watering schedule. Compare arteries veins and capillaries See the watering and mulching section regarding the use of an iron rebar probe to conduct a wetness test.
