Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given but intense weather can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent illness or weather damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn about the trees you wish to take care of 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 researching trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Amount of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree approximately where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone but this is the area where roots are more delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for possible threats that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent damage and make sure trees show up in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these do not straight hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn devices: wear; t get yard devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger severe damage to the bark.
Trees typically flourish well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any additional watering. However, depending on your local climate, you might have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees should not need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly hire a professional. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise get rid of low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 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 have to touch the trunk.
- Plant turf or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product 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.

Arklow (; ARK-loh; from Old Norse Arnkell-lág ‘meadow of Arnkell’, Irish: An tInbhear Mór, meaning “the great estuary”) is a town in County Wicklow on the east coast of Ireland. The town is overlooked by Ballymoyle Hill. It was founded by the Vikings in the ninth century. Arklow was the site of one of the bloodiest battles of the 1798 rebellion. Its proximity to Dublin led to it becoming a commuter town with a population of 13,163 as of the 2016 census.
Arklow is at the mouth of the River Avoca, the longest river wholly within County Wicklow. The town is divided by the river, which is crossed by the Nineteen Arches Bridge, a stone arch bridge linking the southern or main part of the town with the northern part, called Ferrybank. The Nineteen Arches Bridge is the longest handmade stone bridge in Ireland, and a plaque on the south end of the bridge acknowledges this.
