Water Awareness Month

  • Do your homework --- proper tree care starts with selecting the right tree and planting it in the right place.

  • Plant low-water-use trees to shade east, south, and west-facing walls. It will cool your house in the hotter months and you'll save up to 30% off your energy bill.

  • Select native trees to attract birds and provide wildlife corridors in urban environments. They are also best accustomed to natural precipitation and soil conditions, thus thrive with less input than non-natives.
