Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can frequently be taken for approved but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid diseases or weather damage.
Among the first things you can do is find out about the trees you want to look after and their particular 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 looking into trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Particular sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Secure the roots.
Concentrate 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 delicate. The secret is to make sure that the soil is not too compact so that roots can keep absorbing water and oxygen.
Safeguard the bark.
Think about the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for prospective dangers that could harm tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent breakage and make certain trees show up in the evening.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the exact same location can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get braided.
- Yard equipment: don; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees typically flourish well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any additional watering. However, depending upon your local climate, you may have to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do need to water trees in the summertime, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree upkeep. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always hire an expert. The main points to keep an eye out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree recover.
Low branches: get rid of branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate 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.
- Usage 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 lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can flourish in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.

The town lies on the R445, some 50 km (31 mi) west of Dublin – near enough for it to have become, despite being a regional centre in its own right, a commuter town for the capital. Although Kildare gives its name to the county, Naas is the county town.
