The Drought Man's Contract

As welcome as it is, this period of hot weather can spell the end for our newly planted street trees (and for any of our smaller street trees in fact).

If you are looking after a newly planted street tree, please make sure you water it once a week with about 20 litres of water (= two large watering cans or two buckets of water). 

A good dousing is preferable to 'little and often' to encourage the roots to go down deep, rather than to come up to the surface.
