Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given however intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid diseases or weather damage.
One of the first things you can do is discover the trees you wish to care for and their specific requirements. If you’re not sure about the kind of tree you have, there are numerous resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When researching trees, the main points to keep an eye out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Quantity of water required
- Particular level of sensitivities (dry spell, water, wind, etc).
Once you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resistant 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 but 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.
Protect the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that protects the tree. Securing the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for potential dangers that might harm tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to prevent damage and ensure trees show up at night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that repetitively hits bark at the same location can cause damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can cause damage to the bark. Prune branches properly so branches don’t get entwined.
- Yard devices: wear; t get lawn devices close to the tree trunks as this can cause major damage to the bark.
Trees generally prosper well in existing wetness conditions and do not need any additional watering. Nevertheless, depending on your local climate, you may have to water your trees during extended periods of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is preferred to a frequent misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s an important part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ a professional. The main points to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of 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: 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 two ways you can make sure 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 turf or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make sure your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
Nearby Areas That We Cover:
Skryne, officially Skreen (from Irish: Scrín Cholm Cille, meaning ‘Colm Cille’s shrine, or originally called The Hill of Acaill’), is a village situated on and around a hill between the N2 and N3 national primary roads in County Meath, Ireland. It is situated on the far side of the Gabhra valley from the Hill of Tara. This valley is sometimes referred to as the Tara-Skryne Valley. The Hill of Skryne is higher than the neighbouring Hill of Tara. About 1170 Hugh de Lacy, Lord of Meath granted Skryne to Adam de Feypo, whose descendants used the customary title Baron Skryne. A 15th-century church, known locally as Skryne tower or The Steeple, remains in good condition at the top of the hill and is visible from a large area of Meath. At the foot of the tower is a pub and stables that feature in the Guinness “white Christmas” television advertisement.
