Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered given but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather damage.
Among the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to take care of and their particular requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the sort of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant 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 sensitive. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for possible risks that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid breakage and ensure trees show up at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn equipment: wear; t get lawn devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local environment, you may have to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly employ a professional. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make certain that the soil around your tree is rich 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 grass or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.

Arklow (; ARK-loh; from Old Norse Arnkell-lág ‘meadow of Arnkell’, Irish: An tInbhear Mór, meaning “the great estuary”) is a town in County Wicklow on the east coast of Ireland. The town is overlooked by Ballymoyle Hill. It was founded by the Vikings in the ninth century. Arklow was the site of one of the bloodiest battles of the 1798 rebellion. Its proximity to Dublin led to it becoming a commuter town with a population of 13,163 as of the 2016 census.
Arklow is at the mouth of the River Avoca, the longest river wholly within County Wicklow. The town is divided by the river, which is crossed by the Nineteen Arches Bridge, a stone arch bridge linking the southern or main part of the town with the northern part, called Ferrybank. The Nineteen Arches Bridge is the longest handmade stone bridge in Ireland, and a plaque on the south end of the bridge acknowledges this.
