Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered granted however intense weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and try to prevent diseases or weather damage.
Among the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to look after and their specific needs. If you’re unsure about the kind of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points 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 ideas to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Safeguard 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.
Secure the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for potential threats that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent damage and make certain trees are visible at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these don’t straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn equipment: don; t get yard devices near the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees normally flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending on your regional environment, you might have to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire an expert. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also eliminate low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant 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 grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not take on 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.
