Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered granted but extreme weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to care for and their particular needs. If you’re uncertain about the sort of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Amount of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas 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 however 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 protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for potential threats that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid breakage and make certain trees show up during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the very same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Yard devices: don; t get yard devices near the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees typically thrive well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local climate, you may have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main points to look 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 clean cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise remove low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Use 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 yard or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.

Poulaphouca, officially Pollaphuca (Irish: Poll an Phúca, meaning “the Púca’s hole”), is the name of a waterfall and bridge on the River Liffey between County Wicklow and County Kildare. It is primarily known for its hydroelectric generating station and artificial lake, known as Poulaphouca Reservoir, Poulaphouca Lake, or Blessington Lake. The once-famous Poulaphouca Waterfall has little water running over it any longer because of the hydroelectric project.
