Creating a Healthy Urban Forest Video Series

The Cambridge Urban Forestry Division has developed a series of three videos with the goal of creating a healthy urban forest. With a little help from our residents and neighbors, our city trees will thrive. The first video demonstrates how to properly fill a Gator Bag to ensure that newly planted trees have a sufficient water supply required to help them reach maturity.

The second video demonstrates how to properly maintain a tree well, keeping them free from debris and weeds to promote tree health.
