Weekly Watering Alert: Do Not Water – 05.22.17
With a week full of rain ahead, 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.25 to Stay Alive Pledge below and we will mail you a complimentary rain gauge to get you started tracking rainfall totals at home. We mail the rain gauges between May 1 and October 30.
