Tree Watering Tips

  • Our street trees need approximately 20 gallons of water per tree per week
  • If the tree has a Gator Bag, please fill it an additional 2-3 times a week, if possible
  • If the tree does not have a Gator Bag, water slowly at the base and additional 2-3 times a week, if possible
  • REMEMBER- It's hard to over-water a street tree in the midst of a sudden and extreme heat wave, so don't worry!
  • Our trees will really benefit from some extra water during these hot summer days!
