September’s a funny month. It’s basically June, part 2, but because people’s minds are already thinking ahead, they deck themselves in scarves and tweed and stock up on various pumpkin spiced products. And yet the heat bears on. And the trees still need your help.
So please, keep watering your street trees until the leaves have fallen. Yesterday was in the 90s and we’ve not had substantial rains in weeks. Don’t get this far with a young tree and let it down now! Make sure to give it 20 gallons every week. That means filling the ooze bag, if it’s got one, or leaving your hose dribbling water into the tree box for a half hour.
Take these steps now and in a few years you’ll still have a healthy thriving tree!
