Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for given however intense weather can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and try to avoid diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to care for and their particular requirements. If you’re uncertain about the sort of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but 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.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential dangers that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid breakage and make certain trees show up in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the exact same place can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these don’t straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get braided.
- Lawn equipment: don; t get lawn devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees normally grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional climate, you may need to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t 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 what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire a professional. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller sized branch so the more powerful 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 visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods 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 grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.

Poulaphouca, officially Pollaphuca (Irish: Poll an Phúca, meaning “the Púca’s hole”), is the name of a waterfall and bridge on the River Liffey between County Wicklow and County Kildare. It is primarily known for its hydroelectric generating station and artificial lake, known as Poulaphouca Reservoir, Poulaphouca Lake, or Blessington Lake. The once-famous Poulaphouca Waterfall has little water running over it any longer because of the hydroelectric project.
