Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be taken for given however extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is very important to keep trees healthy and attempt to avoid diseases or weather condition damage.
Among the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you want to care for and their specific needs. If you’re uncertain about the sort of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When investigating trees, the main things to look out for are:
- Kind of soil needed
- Quantity of water needed
- Specific level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
As soon as you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 suggestions to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect the roots.
Focus on the zone around a tree up to where the branches extend. Roots can extend beyond this zone however this is the location 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.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Protecting the tree bark will prevent infections, diseases or insect activity. Look out for possible threats that could damage tree bark, including:.
- Vehicles: trees near roads or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to prevent breakage and make certain trees are visible in the evening.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that repetitively strikes bark at the same place can cause damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, make sure these do not straight strike trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get entwined.
- Yard equipment: put on; t get lawn devices near to the tree trunks as this can trigger serious damage to the bark.
Trees usually prosper well in existing wetness conditions and do not require any extra watering. However, depending upon your regional environment, you might have to water your trees throughout 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 require any watering.
We’ve previously blogged about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, otherwise you can constantly 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: get rid of branches that are low and are prone to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise get rid of low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods 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 lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant product will decay in the ground and enrich the soil. Make certain your plants can thrive in the shade and that their roots don’t compete with the tree.
Nearby Areas That We Cover:
Tallaght ( TAL-ə; Irish: Tamhlacht, IPA: [ˈt̪ˠəul̪ˠəxt̪ˠ]) is the largest settlement, and county town, of South Dublin, Ireland, and the largest satellite town of Dublin. The central village area was the site of a monastic settlement from at least the 8th century, which became one of medieval Ireland’s more important monastic centres.
Up to the 1960s, Tallaght was a small village in the traditional County Dublin (now the Dublin Region), linked to several nearby rural areas which were part of the large civil parish of the same name – the local council estimates the then population at 2,500. Suburban development began in the 1970s and a “town centre” area has been developing since the late 1980s. There is no legal definition of the boundaries of Tallaght, but the electoral divisions known as “Tallaght” followed by the name of a locality have, according to the 2016 census, a population of 76,119, up from 69,454 over five years. There have been calls in recent years for Tallaght to be declared a city.
The village core of the district is located north of, and near to, the River Dodder, and parts of the broader area within South Dublin are close to the borders of Dublin City, Kildare, Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown and County Wicklow. Several streams flow in the area, notably the Jobstown or Tallaght Stream (a tributary of the Dodder), and the Fettercairn Stream (a tributary of the River Camac), while the Tymon River, the main component of the River Poddle (Liffey tributary), rises in Cookstown, near Fettercairn.
Tallaght is also the name of an extensive civil parish, which includes other areas of southern and southwestern Dublin, from Templeogue to Ballinascorney in the mountains. A book about the civil parish was published in the 19th century, “The History and Antiquities of Tallaght in the County of Dublin,” written by William Domville Handcock.
