How to Avoid burning leaves Deciduous Bonsai

Prevention of burning leaves deciduous trees in the summer involves two things: 1. We need a lot of fine roots. 2. We need to irrigate often . Let’s break that up a bit.

If you do not have a lot of fine roots, it will not matter how much water because few roots will not be able to withstand the water needs of the tree to 95 F / 35 C. If on water before we have many roots, we will not get many more to emerge. And if the tree is a mixture of poor land, we will not have many fine roots for that reason, too.

If we have a lot of fine roots, yet not water more than once a day to 95 F / 35 C that will probably get burned leaves in our beeches, maples and other deciduous trees of all modes. On a hot, sunny day to be ready for water 3 times a day. If your lifestyle does not allow, then set up an irrigation system for one or two irrigation cycles that can not be done by hand.

These two requirements must be met to avoid burning the leaves. Take a look at these pictures:

This is the Japanese maple floor is also shown in the next shot. There are many fine roots all the way to the top of the soil surface. They even went and entered the fertilizer granules on the surface. That kind of root growth it is what you want to avoid burning the leaves. If you do not have fine roots collide happily along the upper surface of the soil and through its moss you can be sure that has not colonized the pot and only grows along the sides of the pot, which is the worst place for them. On the sides they are going to get sunburned hitting the pot and suffocate in a pool of water at the bottom, and that’s a very unhappy and unstable tree.
