A great group of people, honest & reliable. They weren't just looking to make money, they were honestly looking out for the trees first. Exceeded our expectations and I will definitely refer to all friends and real estate clients. ” - John F.

Traveling this summer? Don't Forget to Water!

Summer is the time for travel and fun. It’s also one of the most treacherous times of the year for our trees as drought continues to be a serious problem. People often assume a tree’s taproot will keep their trees hydrated. However, most trees do not grow taproots, but rather send out a large network of smaller shallow roots to collect water. Large established trees can become brittle and dangerous over periods of drought without it being noticable to most homeowners.

One inch worth of rainfall per week is ideal to keep established trees healthy. If you’ve planted new trees, they’ll need water weekly through summer. Drip watering containers, such as the Treegator Bags, are a great way to water, whether you are home or not!  Fill once a week for healthy trees through summer.
