How to know when to water your young tree this summer? We’ll tell you!

May is around the corner and you know what that means? Starting next week until the last week of September we’ll be issuing weekly watering alerts for trees every Leaflet and on our homepage, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Depending on past weather, forecasts, and a few other factors, we’ll either let you know whether you should water your trees, hold off, or if it’s up to you

We issue these alerts for a very important reason — newly-planted trees need at least 25 gallons a week to survive and thrive. This is such a critical part of new tree care we created a “25 to Stay Alive” Watering Pledge to get folks on board. Pledge now to get a freebie!

The weather is already warming up and last year we literally had one of the rainiest years in recent memory. What do you think this year will bring? Not sure how to tackle watering? We have trusty “how-to” videos and you can even purchase a watering bag to fill up once a week and walk away.

Keep your eyes peeled for next week’s report in the Leaflet and on our homepage, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
