[ARCHIVED] Please Water your Street Trees

Please water the trees in the boulevard in front of your home when you are watering other trees on your property. Watering is especially important for recently planted trees during hot and dry times like we are experiencing now.

Please water the trees in the boulevard in front of your home when you are watering other trees on your property. Watering is especially important for recently planted trees during hot and dry times like we are experiencing now.

Soak the soil beneath the tree, out to the outermost ends of the branches, for an hour or so every week. For smaller, younger trees, you may not have to water as long, but during hot days you may have to water them more often. Give the soil time to dry out a little before watering again.

Watering these trees is very inexpensive, but the benefits of a healthy tree in front of your home are great. If you have a two inch diameter street tree in front of your home, for example, the tree would need about twenty gallons of water each week. Watering such a tree should cost you less than a nickel each time you water.
