Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for granted but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid illness or weather damage.
Among the first things you can do is discover the trees you want to care for and their particular needs. If you’re not sure about the sort of tree you have, there are many resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree up to 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 absorbing water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for prospective threats that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and ensure trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not directly strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard equipment: don; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees typically flourish well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending upon your local environment, you may have 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 regular 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 exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with a professional. The main points to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise eliminate low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can ensure that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Usage mulch. Spread out 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 kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.
Nearby Areas That We Cover:
Tallaght ( TAL-ə; Irish: Tamhlacht, IPA: [ˈt̪ˠəul̪ˠəxt̪ˠ]) is the largest settlement, and county town, of South Dublin, Ireland, and the largest satellite town of Dublin. The central village area was the site of a monastic settlement from at least the 8th century, which became one of medieval Ireland’s more important monastic centres.
Up to the 1960s, Tallaght was a small village in the traditional County Dublin (now the Dublin Region), linked to several nearby rural areas which were part of the large civil parish of the same name – the local council estimates the then population at 2,500. Suburban development began in the 1970s and a “town centre” area has been developing since the late 1980s. There is no legal definition of the boundaries of Tallaght, but the electoral divisions known as “Tallaght” followed by the name of a locality have, according to the 2016 census, a population of 76,119, up from 69,454 over five years. There have been calls in recent years for Tallaght to be declared a city.
The village core of the district is located north of, and near to, the River Dodder, and parts of the broader area within South Dublin are close to the borders of Dublin City, Kildare, Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown and County Wicklow. Several streams flow in the area, notably the Jobstown or Tallaght Stream (a tributary of the Dodder), and the Fettercairn Stream (a tributary of the River Camac), while the Tymon River, the main component of the River Poddle (Liffey tributary), rises in Cookstown, near Fettercairn.
Tallaght is also the name of an extensive civil parish, which includes other areas of southern and southwestern Dublin, from Templeogue to Ballinascorney in the mountains. A book about the civil parish was published in the 19th century, “The History and Antiquities of Tallaght in the County of Dublin,” written by William Domville Handcock.
