There are several ways that you can do to maintain your trees healthy. On this list, we’ll highlight some of the tips provided by the tree service Los Angeles experts to ensure that your trees will have a healthy environment.

Protect their roots with mulch

Some people would think that mulch is only there to make their garden look pretty. However, if you use it properly, it can offer numerous benefits to your trees. That is if you want the trees to be in their optimal health, then putting mulch can be a great way to start.

Mulch can keep the soil moist as it reduces evaporation. In this way, you don’t have to water it every day. Furthermore, it controls weed growth and regulates soil temperature as it acts as an insulator during extreme temperatures.

It also reduces soil erosion and helps the release of nutrients into the soil.

However, no matter how beneficial mulch is, if you overdo it, it can still be bad for your tree as it can lead to extra moisture and promote insect problems.

Apply organic fertilizers

Trees do need nutrients so they can survive even in extreme weather. Thus, by adding organic fertilizers, your soil will have proper nutrients for a healthy growth. However, if your tree came from a nursery, it may not need additional fertilizer as it may have been well-fertilized from the nursery. That said, it may only need water.

To know what nutrients that your tree needs, you should carry a soil test. A test kit is available at a hardware store and it’s fairly cheap. The kit will show you the pH of your soil and its level of nutrients. The most essential nutrients that your trees may need are nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus.

Tree Service - Pruning


It makes your tree look better, increases its strength and helps resist the wind. Through pruning, dead branches are removed so your tree will have a healthy canopy that allows sunlight to reach essential parts of the tree evenly.

Have it inspected

Annual inspection of your trees from a certified arborist should be done. This will help in catching health issues before they get out of control. It’s ideal to protect your property from a storm and El Nino.

To schedule an inspection by our certified arborist, please contact Your Way Tree Service Inc. at 818-882-2335. For four years in a row, we have been awarded by the city of Tarzana as the Best Tree Cutting Service.
