Save Our Shade Trees

Caring for our trees by watering the baby trees and more

Trees need water during the growing season - until the ground freezes - and even before the leaves emerge.

Trees are healthiest when they receive an inch of rain a week during the growing season.  During summer months this does not always happen.  Trees also need a moist root system to get through winter in good shape.  When Fall rains don't come, it helps to give them a drink so they will be healthy the coming Spring.  Trees can be watered until the ground is frozen.
