Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for approved however extreme weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you wish to look after and their specific needs. If you’re uncertain about the type of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the area where roots are more sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for possible dangers that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and make sure trees are visible at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the exact same place can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn equipment: wear; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally grow well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional environment, you might need to water your trees throughout extended periods of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with an expert. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Usage mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not have to touch the trunk.
- Plant lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
Nearby Areas That We Cover:
Newtownmountkennedy (Irish: Baile an Chinnéidigh, meaning “Kennedy’s town”) is a small town in County Wicklow, Ireland. It developed within the historic townland of Ballygarny (Irish: Baile Ó gCearnaigh) (now Mount Kennedy Demesne), although all that remains is a motte where a church, graveyard and a castle or tower house once stood just 0.85 km (0.53 mi) north of the town. It acquired its present name in the mid-seventeenth-century, when Sir Robert Kennedy, M.P. for Kildare, made it his principal residence. It is just off the N11 road to Wexford, just south of Kilpedder and south-west of Greystones. It is about 15 km (9.3 mi) north of Wicklow town, 15 km (9.3 mi) south of Bray and approximately 35 km (22 mi) from Dublin. The R772 regional road passes through the village. This was the main Dublin-Wexford route, the N11, but the village was bypassed by the new N11 dual carriageway in 1990. This town has one of the longest place names in Ireland.
Between the 2011 and 2016 census, the population of the town increased by 17.6% (from 2,410 to 2,835 inhabitants), one of the highest growth rates in County Wicklow on the period. The area is a dormitory town for some workers commuting to Bray and Dublin.
The headquarters of Coillte, the Irish Forestry Board, are situated in the village forest. Newtownmountkennedy is in the Roman Catholic parish of Kilquade and one of the Kilquade parish’s two chapels of ease is located in the village at the junction with the Roundwood Road.
