What this means is that trees planted this year, or any of the past four years or so, need to be watered in order to survive these dry conditions. Deep root watering is important, and it needs to be done now. Without your help, young street trees and park trees will not be able to withstand the extreme conditions.
Please help and water a tree… in front of your home, your neighbor’s house or anywhere that you see a young tree. If you see a Gatorbag watering system attached to a tree, please fill it with 10 or 20 gallons of water. Just lift the tag at the top of the bag, and pour the water into the green bag. You will be doing a world of good… one tree at a time.
