Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for granted but intense weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you wish to care for and their specific requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the type of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Quantity of water required
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate 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 secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep soaking up water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for possible threats that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid breakage and make certain trees show up at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the exact same location can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard devices: don; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees generally prosper well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local environment, you may have 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 season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s an important 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 things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make sure 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 lawn or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.

Ballyknockan or Ballynockan ( bal-ə-NOK-ən; Irish: Buaile an Chnocáin) is a village and townland in County Wicklow, Ireland.
Ballyknockan has been known for the granite quarries that have existed since the early 19th century.
Ballyknockan village is located 220 metres above sea level and is around 25 miles from Dublin City Centre. In 1940 the village of Balinahown was completely flooded and parts of the surrounding towns of Valleymount and Lacken were also flooded to make way for the Poulaphouca Reservoir which spans out over 20 km2 across the land.
Since then the village now overlooks the reservoir which provides water to thousands of Dublin homes and creates electricity, while also offering many water pursuits such as fishing, sailing, windsurfing, boating, and leisure cruising and canoeing.
Ballyknockan hosts the Ballyknockan Music Festival “KnockanStockan”, annually each summer.
