Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered given but extreme weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent illness or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to care for and their particular requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the sort of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees durable 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 secret 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 secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for prospective threats that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid breakage and ensure trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn equipment: wear; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees normally grow well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. However, depending on your regional climate, you might have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly discussed pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with a professional. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can ensure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Use 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 lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.

Macreddin (Irish: Maigh Chríodáin, meaning “plain of Cridan”; formerly also Moycreedin; formerly officially Carysfort, also Cariesfort), is a hamlet in County Wicklow, in the southern foothills of the Wicklow Mountains, 4 km north of Aughrim on the back road to Greenan. The historical borough is in the townland of Macreddin West in the civil parish of Ballykine, barony of Ballinacor South. It also gives its name to the adjacent townland of Macreddin East.
Wicklow County Council’s 2010 development plan recognises the site as an “area of archaeological potential and significance” as “site of one of the few 17th century Plantation Towns established in Leinster”. The pre-1800 parliamentary borough of Carysfort and the title Earl of Carysfort derive from Carysfort.
