Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can typically be considered approved but intense weather can take its toll. It is essential to keep trees healthy and try to avoid diseases or weather damage.
One of 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 kind of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to help you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points 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 tips to keep your trees resistant and healthy.
Safeguard the roots.
Concentrate on the zone around a tree up to 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 soaking up water and oxygen.
Protect the bark.
Think of the bark as an armour that safeguards the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will avoid infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for potential threats that could damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from tall vehicles. Eliminate lower branches to avoid breakage and make certain trees show up at night.
- Sprinkler system: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the very same place can trigger damage. If you utilize sprinklers to water your lawn, ensure these do not directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing against each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches don’t get braided.
- Yard devices: put on; t get yard equipment near the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees generally grow well in existing moisture conditions and don’t need any additional watering. However, depending on your local climate, you might need to water your trees throughout extended durations of drought. If you do have to water trees in the summer season, an occasional deep watering is preferred to a regular misting. In winter season trees should not require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a vital part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always work with a professional. The main points to watch out for are:.
- Crossing branches: get rid of the smaller sized branch so the stronger one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will assist the tree recover.
Low branches: remove branches that are low and are susceptible to damage (i.e. by an effect). You can likewise eliminate low branches for visual purposes.
Keep soil healthy.
There are 2 ways you can make certain 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 grass or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and improve the soil. Make certain your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots do not take on the tree.
Nearby Areas That We Cover:
Ballsbridge (Irish: Droichead na Dothra, meaning “Dodder bridge”) (from historic Ball’s Bridge) is an affluent neighbourhood of the city of Dublin, the capital of Ireland. The area is largely north and west of a three-arch stone bridge across the River Dodder, on the south side of the city. The sign on the bridge still proclaims it as “Ball’s Bridge”, in recognition of the fact that the original bridge on that location was built and owned by the Ball family, a well-known Dublin merchant family in the 1500s and the 1600s. The current bridge was built in 1791.
Ballsbridge was once part of the Pembroke Township.
