Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for given but intense weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to take care of and their specific requirements. If you’re uncertain about the kind of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main points to look out for are:
- Type of soil required
- Amount of water required
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 tips 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 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 taking in water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Keep an eye out for potential dangers that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent breakage and ensure trees are visible at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again hits bark at the same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get laced.
- Lawn devices: put on; t get yard equipment near to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees normally prosper well in existing wetness conditions and don’t require any additional watering. However, depending on your local climate, you might need to water your trees during extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ a professional. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a tidy cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can likewise get rid of low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two 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 need to touch the trunk.
- Plant lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Ensure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.

Ballyknockan or Ballynockan ( bal-ə-NOK-ən; Irish: Buaile an Chnocáin) is a village and townland in County Wicklow, Ireland.
Ballyknockan has been known for the granite quarries that have existed since the early 19th century.
Ballyknockan village is located 220 metres above sea level and is around 25 miles from Dublin City Centre. In 1940 the village of Balinahown was completely flooded and parts of the surrounding towns of Valleymount and Lacken were also flooded to make way for the Poulaphouca Reservoir which spans out over 20 km2 across the land.
Since then the village now overlooks the reservoir which provides water to thousands of Dublin homes and creates electricity, while also offering many water pursuits such as fishing, sailing, windsurfing, boating, and leisure cruising and canoeing.
Ballyknockan hosts the Ballyknockan Music Festival “KnockanStockan”, annually each summer.
