Young Trees Need Lots of Water in July

street-trees-watering-tagYoung trees, whether planted by you or by your municipality need lots of help to get established.

The City of Vancouver is asking residents to please help by watering new trees a couple of times a week. We should all be doing the same.

The whole of the CVRD is now under Stage 2 Watering restrictions, but these do not apply to trees and shrubs. For everything else, it is twice a week between the hours of 6 am – 9 am and 7 pm to 10 pm. While the above link is to the CVRD information, it is true for Duncan, Ladysmith, Lake Cowichan and North Cowichan as well.
