This Week on Tree Talk Thursday: Summer Tree Care

Summertime in the District means heat, humidity and dry spells. Our trees - particularly those that have been planted recently - need plenty of water to survive challenging summer conditions. We want to answer your questions about summer tree care so that you can get more involved with trees in your neighborhood.

Remember, your young trees need 25 gallons of water - approximately 1.5 inches of rain per week.

Tune in to Tree Talk Thursday, tomorrow, July 14 at 12:00 PM for a live, online discussion with John Thomas, Associate Director of the Urban Forestry Administration (UFA), and Casey Trees' Urban Forestry Instructor Shawn Walker, for a guide to keeping your trees healthy and strong throughout the summer months.

To submit a question in advance, you can email or tweet @CaseyTrees. Tree Talk Thursday is held regularly on the second Thursday of each month from 12:00 to 1:00 PM and can be accessed here.
