July 24 – Weekly Watering Alert
The past week ended up bringing a healthy dousing of rain, much of it in the last two days. Scattered patches of rain over the coming week should bring most parts of the city up to or past 1.5 inches of precipitation. No need to water this week!
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. Every Monday from May 1 through September 30, we post a tree watering alert in our weekly newsletter, our homepage, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
