Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered granted but intense weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to care for and their specific requirements. If you’re not sure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Concentrate 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for possible risks that could harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent breakage and ensure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the very same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees generally flourish well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional environment, you may need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve formerly blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know 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 sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise remove low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods 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 yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make sure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
Nearby Areas That We Cover:
Ballsbridge (Irish: Droichead na Dothra, meaning “Dodder bridge”) (from historic Ball’s Bridge) is an affluent neighbourhood of the city of Dublin, the capital of Ireland. The area is largely north and west of a three-arch stone bridge across the River Dodder, on the south side of the city. The sign on the bridge still proclaims it as “Ball’s Bridge”, in recognition of the fact that the original bridge on that location was built and owned by the Ball family, a well-known Dublin merchant family in the 1500s and the 1600s. The current bridge was built in 1791.
Ballsbridge was once part of the Pembroke Township.
