Branch Out Burlington! promotes a vision of a city graced by a variety of beautiful and healthy trees, and a citizenry actively involved with the perpetual expansion and preservation of our urban forest.
Because of recent high heat and drought, our street trees are suffering. Young trees growing in the city greenbelt or in your yard should receive at least 20 gallons of water per week. In Burlington, the city waters the new trees they planted this year, but not those planted last year. In other towns, trees may not get watered at all.
Please help, and give them a drink. It is best to use a hose with a gentle stream to give them a deep watering that allows the water to soak into the soil to a depth of at least 2 inches.
