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!)
