Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered given but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It’s important to keep trees healthy and attempt to prevent illness or weather condition damage.
One of the first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to care for and their specific needs. If you’re not sure about the type of tree you have, there are numerous 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:
- Kind of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
When you know more about your trees, follow these 5 ideas to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard 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 area where roots are more delicate. 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.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for possible risks that might damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent breakage and ensure trees show up in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the very same place can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, make certain these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get laced.
- Lawn equipment: put on; t get lawn equipment close to the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees usually thrive well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any extra watering. Nevertheless, depending on your regional climate, you may need to water your trees during extended durations of dry spell. If you do have to water trees in the summertime, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter trees shouldn’t need any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s an important 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 things to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: remove the smaller sized branch so the more powerful one can grow without being harmed.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also eliminate low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 methods you can ensure that the soil around your tree is rich 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 type of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Ensure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not compete with the tree.

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.
