Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given but extreme weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid illness or weather damage.
Among the first things you can do is discover the trees you want to look after and their specific needs. If you’re not sure about the type 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 watch out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the location where roots are more delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing 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. Look out for prospective risks that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent damage and make certain trees show up during the night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get yard equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees typically flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional 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 regular misting. In winter trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged 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 constantly hire an expert. The main things to watch 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 clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise get rid of low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Usage 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 lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
Nearby Areas That We Cover:
Ballinaclash (Irish: An Chlais, meaning “townland of the ravine”) is a village in east County Wicklow centred on a bridge that carries the R753 regional road across the River Avonbeg.
The village is mentioned in J.M. Synge’s play ‘The Tinker’s Wedding’: “And a big fool I was too, maybe; but we’ll be seeing Jaunting Jim to-morrow in Ballinaclash, and he after getting a great price for his white foal in the horse-fair of Wicklow”
In 1837, the village had a population of 3855 according to Samuel Lewis’ ‘A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland’. This population was much reduced by the famine and subsequent emigration and today is only a fraction of that number.
The village was originally the site of an ancient monastery founded by the brother of St. Kevin, according to Mervyn Archdall. The site is now occupied by Whaley Abbey; the home of the notorious Buck Whaley.
