3. Proper Watering and Mulching

  • Consistent Watering: Provide adequate water, especially during dry periods, to keep trees healthy.
  • Mulch Around the Base: Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the tree to retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and prevent weed growth. Ensure mulch is not piled against the trunk to prevent rot.

4. Fertilization

  • Nutrient Supply: Use appropriate fertilizers to provide essential nutrients that promote healthy growth and strengthen the tree’s structure.
  • Soil Testing: Conduct soil tests to determine nutrient deficiencies and apply fertilizers accordingly.
