    Basic Tree Maintenance Tips

     

    Trees can often be taken for approved but intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to avoid diseases or weather damage.

    Among the very first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to look after and their specific needs. 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 investigating trees, the main points to look out for are:

    • Kind of soil needed
    • Quantity of water required
    • Particular level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).

    When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees durable and healthy.

    Protect 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 area 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.

    Protect the bark.

    Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Watch out for possible dangers that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.

    • Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent damage and ensure trees show up in the evening.
    • Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the very same place can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these don’t straight strike trees.
    • Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches do not get braided.
    • Lawn equipment: put on; t get yard equipment close to the tree trunks as this can cause severe damage to the bark.

    Water efficiently.

    Trees typically thrive well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending on your local environment, you might have to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is chosen to a frequent misting. In winter trees should not need any watering.

    Prune effectively.

    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 what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire a professional. The main things 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 tidy cut will assist the tree heal.

    Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also remove low branches for visual purposes.

    Keep soil healthy.

    There are 2 methods you can make sure that the soil around your tree is abundant 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 grass or some type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can grow in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.

    Nearby Areas That We Cover:

    Ballybough (Irish: An Baile Bocht, “the poor town”) is an inner city district of northeast Dublin city, Ireland. Situated north of Summerhill Parade at The Tom Clarke Bridge which separates Dublin 1 and Ballybough Village Dublin 3. Adjacent areas include the North Strand and Clonliffe. Before its urbanization in the late 19th century, Ballybough was known as Mud Island, owing to its proximity to the mud flats that now form Fairview and environs. Ballybough can be seen on the old maps as the original coast road now replaced by the North Strand Road.
    There is an old Jewish cemetery, Ballybough Cemetery, on Fairview Strand near Ballybough Bridge (now renamed Luke Kelly Bridge) — the bridge that formed the central point of the Battle of Clontarf. Inspired by this cemetery Dublin poet Gerry McDonnell wrote his collection of poetry, ‘Mud Island Elegy’, on the Jewish community of Ireland in the 19th century.

    In the distant past, this was a district that attracted characters of ill-repute, drunks, prostitutes, and pirates. James Clarence Mangan used the pseudonym ‘Peter Puff Secundus, Mud Island, near the bog’ to identify with the area. Here the authorities designated an area of burial known colloquially as ‘the Suicide Plot’ from which Bram Stoker derived the idea of the cross for his novel Dracula, the cross being the junction of Clonliffe Road and Ballybough Road.[citation needed] This site now hosts two large advertising billboards which local residents are trying to have removed.[citation needed]

    During the land reclamation project of the 19th century, Mud Island was also known, interchangeably, as Friend’s Field or French Field, before it became known by its current name. The village of Ballybough traces its origins to a series of small dwellings known as Ballybough Cottages, which were later demolished to make way for the Dublin Corporation housing project known as Ballybough House.

    Close by at Jones’s Road is Croke Park, the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association. This sports stadium is among the most modern in Europe with a capacity of 82,300. In addition to hurling and Gaelic football, it is used as a concert venue. Here U2 has played to some of its largest audiences. The stadium was where world boxing champion Muhammad Ali defeated ‘Al Blue’ Lewis in a non-title fight in 1972.

    Luke Kelly of The Dubliners folk group, for whom Ballybough Bridge over the River Tolka is named, is from the area, as is film director Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot, The Field). Curtis Flemming from Tolka Road played International football for Ireland as did Paddy Moore from Clonliffe Avenue.[citation needed]
