Casey Trees launches Tree Watering Guide, watering alert system; Washington, DC

Tree Watering Guide:
The Tree Watering Guide is an easy to follow tool to help District residents practice 25 to Stay Alive through the spring, summer and fall months when watering trees, especially those that have been in the ground less than three years, is critical to their survival.
Young and mature trees require 25 gallons of water - approximately 1.5 inches of rainfall - per week to grow healthy and strong. In times of little or no rainfall, and especially during the hot summer months, trees need your help in getting the recommended 25 gallons of water per week.
From now until October, Casey Trees will issue weekly tree watering recommendations for District residents to follow. Precipitation and streamflow data determine the overall condition - Dry, Normal or Wet - and the associated watering recommendation.
