Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for given however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent diseases or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you wish to take care of and their particular requirements. If you’re uncertain 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 investigating trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Particular level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard 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.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential risks that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to avoid breakage and make certain trees show up at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get lawn devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees normally flourish well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire a professional. The main things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Usage mulch. Spread 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 type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
Nearby Areas That We Cover:
Ballinaclash (Irish: An Chlais, meaning “townland of the ravine”) is a village in east County Wicklow centred on a bridge that carries the R753 regional road across the River Avonbeg.
The village is mentioned in J.M. Synge’s play ‘The Tinker’s Wedding’: “And a big fool I was too, maybe; but we’ll be seeing Jaunting Jim to-morrow in Ballinaclash, and he after getting a great price for his white foal in the horse-fair of Wicklow”
In 1837, the village had a population of 3855 according to Samuel Lewis’ ‘A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland’. This population was much reduced by the famine and subsequent emigration and today is only a fraction of that number.
The village was originally the site of an ancient monastery founded by the brother of St. Kevin, according to Mervyn Archdall. The site is now occupied by Whaley Abbey; the home of the notorious Buck Whaley.
