Tree emergency!

By Topher Mathews

While the rain storm we received last week was heavy, it was all too short. GM can’t remember when it rained before that. So what’s that mean? Our street trees are in trouble. We’re still losing trees from a similar drought from a couple years ago. Trees neglected now could soon die too.

GM has already bored you to tears about the ins-and-outs of caring for our street trees, but now its your turn to step up to help preserve our tree canopy.

Water your street tree at least once a week (in this weather, do it twice if you can)
