Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be taken for given however intense weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and try to avoid illness or weather damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you want to take care of and their specific requirements. If you’re uncertain about the sort of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resistant 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 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.
Safeguard the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for possible risks that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid breakage and make certain trees are visible in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the very same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these don’t directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn equipment: put on; t get lawn devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees usually prosper well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your local environment, you might need to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly work with a professional. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for aesthetic functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich in nutrients.
- Usage mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not need to touch the trunk.
- Plant lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
Nearby Areas That We Cover:
Santry (Irish: Seantrabh, meaning “Old tribe”) is a suburb on the northside of Dublin, Ireland, bordering Coolock, Glasnevin, Kilmore and Ballymun. It straddles the boundary of Dublin City Council and Fingal County Council jurisdictions.
The character of the area has changed in the last 100 years, from a district centred on a large estate, and later small village, to a modern, rather dispersed, mixed-use suburb. Much of the old village is gone and where there were once fields full of crops, and wild woodlands of all sorts, there are now housing estates, an athletics stadium, a shopping complex, industrial parks and busy roads leading to Dublin Airport.
Trinity College Library has a depository at Santry which holds three million books.
Santry is also the name of a civil parish in the ancient barony of Coolock.
