Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for granted however intense weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to prevent illness or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to look after and their specific needs. If you’re not sure about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however 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.
Safeguard 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 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 prevent damage and make sure trees are visible in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the very same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Yard equipment: wear; t get yard devices near the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local environment, you might need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with a professional. The main points to look 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 assist the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make sure 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant yard or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can thrive 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.
