Caring for Trees is a Wise Use of Water
Urban trees provide many benefits and deserve our care. They enhance our quality of life, clean the air, increase habitat, create shade and help us save energy.
Although trees in Santa Rosa usually receive plenty of rain water in winter, most trees will need irrigation in summer as the days grow longer, hotter, and drier. You can help trees on your property to thrive by watering the right amount at the right time.
