Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered approved but intense weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid illness or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to look after and their particular requirements. If you’re uncertain 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 points to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Quantity of water required
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree as much as where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential dangers that could harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Get rid of 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 same place can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make sure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Yard equipment: don; t get lawn devices close to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees normally prosper well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local climate, you may have to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, an occasional 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 essential part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with an expert. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is abundant 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 yard or some type of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.
Nearby Areas That We Cover:
Rathmines (Irish: Ráth Maonais, meaning “ringfort of Maonas”) is an inner suburb on the southside of Dublin, about 3 kilometres south of the city centre. It effectively begins at the south side of the Grand Canal and stretches along the Rathmines Road as far as Rathgar to the south, Ranelagh to the east and Harold’s Cross to the west. It is situated in the city’s Dublin 6 postal district.
Rathmines has thriving commercial and civil activity and is well known across Ireland as part of a traditional “flatland” – providing rented accommodation to newly arrived junior civil servants and third level students coming from outside the city since the 1930s. In more recent times, Rathmines has diversified its housing stock and many houses have been gentrified by the wealthier beneficiaries of Ireland’s economic boom of the 1990s. Rathmines, nonetheless, is often said to have a cosmopolitan air, and has a diverse international population and has always been home to groups of new immigrant communities and indigenous ethnic minorities.
