Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered granted but intense weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid illness or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn about the trees you wish to take care of and their particular requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately 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 soaking up water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for prospective risks that could harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent damage and ensure trees are visible at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the very same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make certain 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 laced.
- Yard equipment: wear; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees generally thrive well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any additional watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you may have to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ an expert. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized 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 prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can make sure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread 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 product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can thrive 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.
