- Ensure your tree gets rain every few days during the event of a drought.
- Avoid driving/parking on the soil beneath the trees canopy.
- Apply 2-3 inches of mulch around your tree, there is a right way and wrong way to do this. See this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fI12XNNqldA
- Have your tree pruned earlier in its life rather than later. Trees are a little bit like people; train them early in life and they are less likely to depart from this as they grow old.
- Know your tree. Regularly pay attention to changes that your tree undergoes so that you can catch hazards and disease before they become larger issues.
