Trees Need Water Too!

We all know that these 100+ degree temperatures are hard on people and animals. If you'll look around your Kansas City neighborhood, you'll notice that some of the trees' leaves are turning brown. The prolongedBlue Spruce  drought combined with the heat wave are sapping all the trees' strength. They would LOVE a drink of water!

Here's a link to phytosphere showing how to water a tree. A deep watering around the tree's drip line once every 10 days is better than a splash of water every day.

trees Landscaping, including trees, does affect the value of your property but trees also give us shade, control erosion, and convert carbon dioxide into oxygen for us to breathe. Be sure to give your trees a drink!

Maria... the great majority of homes that I have sold have been to first-time buyers... and the majority of those have been new homes.  It is just very surprising how many first-time buyers, once they move in, forget to water the two trees in the front yard that come with the home.

Sometimes, in areas that do not have watering restrictions, I will even stop for a quick visit to my new home-owners... and remind them of the importance of watering those trees.

This is great advice, Maria.  I am sure the last thing people are thinking of in this heat are the trees.

Maria, this is a great reminder for those of us going through a heat wave.  We are in the mid to upper 90s all week and I did give some of my smaller trees a soaking yesterday.  Great tips for your consumers, Maria!

Good advice, Maria!  A couple of years ago, I had a house in escrow which had been vacant for quite sometime.  While the buyer and I waited for the transaction to close, I went over and made certain the trees were all watered.
