Basic Tree Maintenance Tips
Trees can often be considered approved but extreme weather condition can take its toll. It is necessary to keep trees healthy and aim to avoid diseases or weather condition damage.
One of the very first things you can do is learn more about the trees you wish to look after and their particular requirements. If you’re not sure about the type of tree you have, there are lots of resources online to assist you, such as the Forestry Commission Tree Name Trail. When looking into trees, the main points to watch out for are:
- Type of soil needed
- Amount of water required
- Particular level of sensitivities (drought, water, wind, etc).
When you understand more about your trees, follow these 5 pointers to keep your trees resilient and healthy.
Protect 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 location 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.
Secure the bark.
Consider the bark as an armour that secures the tree. Safeguarding the tree bark will prevent infections, illness or insect activity. Look out for possible threats that might damage tree bark, consisting of:.
- Vehicles: trees near roadways or driveways can suffer hits from high vehicles. Get rid of lower branches to avoid breakage and make certain trees are visible during the night.
- Lawn sprinklers: a spray of water that over and over again strikes bark at the exact same location can trigger damage. If you use sprinklers to water your yard, ensure these don’t directly hit trees.
- Branches: branches rubbing versus each other can trigger damage to the bark. Prune branches correctly so branches do not get braided.
- Lawn devices: wear; t get lawn devices near the tree trunks as this can trigger major damage to the bark.
Trees usually thrive well in existing wetness conditions and don’t need any extra watering. However, depending upon your regional environment, you might need to water your trees during extended periods of dry spell. If you do need to water trees in the summer, a periodic deep watering is chosen to a regular misting. In winter season trees shouldn’t require any watering.
We’ve previously written about pruning trees as it’s a crucial part of tree maintenance. It’s something you can do yourself if you understand exactly what you are doing, otherwise you can always employ an expert. The main things to look out for are:.
- Crossing branches: eliminate the smaller branch so the more powerful one can grow without being damaged.
- Broken and dead branches: a clean cut will help the tree heal.
Low branches: eliminate branches that are low and are vulnerable to damage (i.e. by an impact). You can also get rid of low branches for visual functions.
Keep soil healthy.
There are two methods you can make certain that the soil around your tree is abundant in nutrients.
- Use mulch. Spread out a layer of mulch around your tree, about 2 to 4 inches thick. The mulch does not need to touch the trunk.
- Plant lawn or some kind of ground cover. Dead plant material will decay in the ground and enhance the soil. Make certain your plants can prosper in the shade and that their roots don’t take on the tree.

Kildare (Irish: Cill Dara, meaning “church of the oak”) is a town in County Kildare, Ireland. As of 2016, its population was 8,634 making it the 7th largest town in County Kildare. 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.
