Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for given but intense weather can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and aim to prevent diseases or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to care for and their particular needs. If you’re not exactly sure about the kind of tree you have, there are many resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Particular level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees durable and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree approximately 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 soaking up water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Watch out for possible risks that might harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid damage and make sure trees are visible at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the very same location can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your yard, make certain these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard devices: put on; t get lawn equipment near to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees typically prosper well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. However, depending on your regional climate, you may need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an essential part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ an expert. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise remove low branches for aesthetic purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can make certain 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 grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Ensure your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
Nearby Areas That We Cover:
Ballinaclash (Irish: An Chlais, meaning “townland of the ravine”) is a village in east County Wicklow centred on a bridge that carries the R753 regional road across the River Avonbeg.
The village is mentioned in J.M. Synge’s play ‘The Tinker’s Wedding’: “And a big fool I was too, maybe; but we’ll be seeing Jaunting Jim to-morrow in Ballinaclash, and he after getting a great price for his white foal in the horse-fair of Wicklow”
In 1837, the village had a population of 3855 according to Samuel Lewis’ ‘A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland’. This population was much reduced by the famine and subsequent emigration and today is only a fraction of that number.
The village was originally the site of an ancient monastery founded by the brother of St. Kevin, according to Mervyn Archdall. The site is now occupied by Whaley Abbey; the home of the notorious Buck Whaley.
