Did you know it takes an average of 30 to 120 years for a tree to reach maturity and only 4 weeks for brown grass to be revived after going dormant.

Please prioritize watering the trees around your home instead of your lawn and other plants.

WHY SAVE TREES?

  • Trees help sequester carbon and provide clean air to breathe.
  • Mature trees add to your home value and are expensive to replace.
  • Trees are home to various species and help reduce noise.

IT'S EASY. HERE'S HOW:

  • Water trees deeply once a week.
  • Let the lawn go. (It’s easiest to revive or replace)
  • Give your trees the extra water captured from your shower (Tip: Place a bucket in your shower while the water warms up!)
