Watering Your Newly Planted Parkway Tree

Do you have a new parkway tree and have questions about watering it? Every new parkway tree the City plants receives a gator bag to help with watering the tree. The City will fill the gator bag initially when the tree is first planted, but asks that residents fill the bag thereafter. If your parkway tree appears thirsty, please fill the gator bag no more than once every two weeks, as long as we have not had significant rainfall.
A quick check of the soil underneath the mulch to see if it is moist will tell you if the tree needs water.
