Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for granted but extreme weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather condition damage.
Among the very first things you can do is find out about the trees you wish to care for and their specific requirements. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind 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 things to keep an eye out for are:
- Kind of soil required
- Quantity of water required
- Particular sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you know more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus 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 secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep taking in water and oxygen.
Secure the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for possible risks that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Remove lower branches to prevent breakage and ensure trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.
- Yard devices: wear; t get yard devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause serious damage to the bark.
Trees normally flourish well in existing moisture conditions and do not require any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional climate, you might need to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously discussed pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly employ a professional. The main things to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove 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.
- Use 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 yard or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make sure your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
Nearby Areas That We Cover:
Knocklyon (Irish: Cnoc Lín) is a suburb of Dublin in the administrative county of South Dublin within the traditional County Dublin, Ireland. Unlike many Dublin suburbs, Knocklyon was not developed around a village; rather it largely comprises modern housing built between the village of Templeogue and the former hamlet, now a suburb in its own right, of Firhouse. A number of old cottages and farmhouses along the Knocklyon Road attest to the area’s rural past.
