Young street trees need special care during their first summers in the hot urban environment if they are to survive and thrive .
They need YOUR help.
If there is a new street tree in front of your home, business or church, please haul out the hose and water that tree.
No watering bag on your street tree yet? There are other easy ways to get water deep down to the root ball without the watering bag.
The soil is quite dry now and so the current recommendation for watering is once a week.
