With Excessive Heat, Young Trees Need Watering Assistance
With the hot temperatures we’ve been experiencing recently, everyone is looking for ways to cool off and stay hydrated. Getting enough water is not only important for people and pets during heat waves, it is also important for our city trees — and especially trees that have been planted for less than three years.
According to Casey Trees, newly planted trees — those that have been in the ground less than three years — require 25 gallons of water, approximately 1.5 inches of rainfall, per week to survive. During extended periods of little or no rainfall and/or high temperatures, trees may need our help getting the water they need. (Read more about tree watering here).
It is important to remember that all new trees need our help, which includes trees planted on both private property and in public tree boxes.
Casey Trees also created the following video on how to water a tree.
