Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered approved but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather damage.
Among the first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to care for and their specific requirements. If you’re unsure about the kind of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area where roots are more delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for potential risks that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make certain trees are visible at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard devices: wear; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally grow well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your local climate, you may need to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly employ an expert. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise get rid of low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not need to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.

Ballyknockan or Ballynockan ( bal-ə-NOK-ən; Irish: Buaile an Chnocáin) is a village and townland in County Wicklow, Ireland.
Ballyknockan has been known for the granite quarries that have existed since the early 19th century.
Ballyknockan village is located 220 metres above sea level and is around 25 miles from Dublin City Centre. In 1940 the village of Balinahown was completely flooded and parts of the surrounding towns of Valleymount and Lacken were also flooded to make way for the Poulaphouca Reservoir which spans out over 20 km2 across the land.
Since then the village now overlooks the reservoir which provides water to thousands of Dublin homes and creates electricity, while also offering many water pursuits such as fishing, sailing, windsurfing, boating, and leisure cruising and canoeing.
Ballyknockan hosts the Ballyknockan Music Festival “KnockanStockan”, annually each summer.
