Trees can often be considered given but intense weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and try to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to care for and their particular needs. 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 required
Specific level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure 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 location where roots are more sensitive. The key is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective threats that might damage tree bark, including:.
Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent damage and ensure trees are visible in the evening.
Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the exact same location can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these do not straight hit trees.
Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get entwined.
Yard devices: wear; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees generally thrive well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending upon your regional environment, you might have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire an expert. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make certain 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 type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Ensure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
Drumconrath or Drumcondra (historically Drumconra, from Irish: Droim Conrach, meaning “ridge of Conrach”) is a small village in north County Meath, Ireland. The parish borders County Louth and is also close to the borders of Counties Monaghan and Cavan. As of the 2016 census, the village had a population of 345 people.
The village lies in a parish, of the same name, with a population of 2,967 and which spans 7,566 acres (30.62 km2).[permanent dead link]
There is evidence of settlement in the area since before 200BC in the ancient pathways and ringforts at Corstown and Drumsilagh. The battle of Ballyhoe (1539AD) between the O’Neills and the English, took place nearby. Of this battle, local folklore says that a treasure was thrown into the lake during the battle and when a true Irish Gael on a white horse comes, he will swoop into the lake and take it.
During the Late Middle Ages, Drumconrath was literally “Beyond the Pale” being the first Gaelic Settlement you meet leaving the Pale from Ardee. It was a hostile place for the English who left the safety of the Pale and frequent battles took place in the village.
The remains of a monastery on Church Hill, destroyed because of Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monastery Act, overlook Lough Braken lake. Here there are views of the Mourne Mountains in one direction and the Dublin Mountains in the other.
During the 1798 rebellion, five parishioners were killed by the Louth Militia for refusing to allow them entry to the Church in the village. The area had strong Ribbonmen support and six men from the area were hanged for their part in the infamous burning of the Wildgoose Lodge Murders nearby.
The village kept its nationalist ideals, and a number of local men fought in the Anglo-Irish War and the Irish Civil War with nearby Kingscourt Brigade. It is recorded that this Brigade fired the last shot of the Anglo-Irish War at 11:20 on 11 June 1921, twenty minutes after the truce.
A movie, released in October 2016, was filmed in and near Drumconrath. The movie, “The Wilde Goose Lodge”, involved a number of local people and actors.
Set in forested drumlin countryside and surrounded by small lakes, the area around Drumconrath is a long-established angling centre with many walking areas. Lough Bracken and the smaller lakes of Corstown and Balrath, and the River Dee are situated in this area.
Village amenities including a doctor’s GP practice, a post office, hair salon, pharmacy, butchers, primary school, a grocery store and a B&B within an old store. There are three housing estates bordering the village. Night life in the village centres on 3 pubs in the village, The Old Thatch, Fay’s Bar and Muldoon’s. There is a large community centre in the village which is used for various activities. There is a pitch & putt course to the rear. St. Peter & Paul’s National School is situated on the Kingscourt road at the end of the village.
There are two churches in the village. Saint Peter’s Church of Ireland (now closed) and Saint Peter & Paul’s Catholic Church. There are some burial graves surrounding Saint Peter’s Church which are mostly abandoned and overgrown but the village has two other cemeteries on the Ardee road, one Catholic and one Protestant.
The local GAA team, Drumconrath GAA, plays on the local gaa field on the Navan road in Birdhill. Due to lack of players in the younger ages of the teams, the team usually recruits players from the local parish of Meath-hill to form the team “Drumconrath-Meath-Hill”.
