When trees live in a city, they need a little extra TLC. Urban trees, especially street trees, deal with a number of stressors, including soil compaction, lack of water, de-icing salts, and vandalism. You’re the key to helping them survive.
So what can you do? For starters, you can water newly planted trees 15-20 gallons every week from March through December for the first two years. You can also add organic, composted mulch which you can get for free at the Fairmount Park Organic Recycling Center to your tree every spring and fall to help it stay hydrated.Street Tree care Yard Tree Care
