Learn about the trees in a park near year you! This fall we are planting and inventorying hundreds of trees to assess their health, species and height - and we need your help. No experience necessary, we give you the tools and training on site.
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. That’s why every Monday from May 1 through September 30, we post a tree watering alert to let you know whether you should water your trees, hold off, or if it’s up to you. As for the week of Sept 17? Don’t Water: Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun, Please shine down on D.C. While we missed the most of Florence, remnants of the storm will pass through all week. Rain will be location dependent, so check your young tree’s soil if it looks dry. #25toStayAlive
