Thank you for taking the 25 to stay alive tree watering pledge

Watering is an essential part of growing D.C.’s trees and reaching the 40 percept canopy goal.

If less than 1.5 inches of rain falls in a week, you know it’s time to water your trees. Check your rain gauge and follow our weekly watering alerts, which we issue every Monday from May through September in our weekly newsletter, our homepage, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Water like a pro.
Watch our instructional video for time-saving tree watering tips.

Install and use a slow release watering bag that holds the recommended 25-gallons of water. Just fill the bag up and walk away. Bags available for purchase in our online store.

Happy Watering!
