Looking after Beech trees

There are very few fairer sights in the forest than a beech tree in full bloom. This is especially true if you have managed to get a purple-hued copper beech to flourish in the garden or nearby. The Beech is one of the most numerous and common trees in Britain, making up extensive forests and often appearing as a statement piece buried deep in the woods somewhere.

Beech trees need careful attention, just like any other tree in the environment. The wisest call to action is to use the services of a Tree Surgeon Bournemouth based team.  Once they are established, Beech trees tend to look after themselves. However, they still need to have the usual amount of work done to them, such as the removal of deadwood and branches. This allows the tree to concentrate on feeding its living parts rather than just attempting to feed parts that are broken.

Young Beech trees are a very different matter. When they are just starting out, they need more care. For example, if there is a dry spell, then they will need a good soaking of water to help them hydrate. Beech trees that are matured generally have a good ability to sustain themselves during dry periods. However, if there has been a very long length of time without rain, it may well be advisable to give them some water directly. One thing they truly enjoy is a decent bit of fertilizer to really help with their growth.
