Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be considered approved however extreme weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to look after and their specific requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the sort 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 look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however 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 soaking up water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for prospective threats that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees show up in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Yard devices: put on; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees normally grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional environment, you might have to water your trees throughout extended periods of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ an expert. The main things to watch 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 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 impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two ways you can ensure 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant turf or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Ensure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.

The Curragh (Irish: An Currach, [ənˠ ˈkʊɾˠəx]) is a flat open plain of almost 2,000 hectares (5,000 acres) of common land in Newbridge, County Kildare. This area is well known for Irish horse breeding and training. The Irish National Stud is located on the edge of Kildare town, beside the famous Japanese Gardens. Also located here is Pollardstown Fen, the largest fen in Ireland. This area is of particular interest to botanists and ecologists because of the numerous bird species that nest and visit there. There are also many rare plants that grow there.
It is composed of a sandy soil formed after an esker deposited a sand load and as a result it has excellent drainage characteristics. This makes it a popular location for training racehorses.
