Watering advice from expert Arborist in Ottawa Illinois.

The Illinois Valley recently received anywhere from three to seven inches of water, which was well needed, because we’ve been in somewhat of a drought. Summer is about to kick off here on Tuesday, and praise God we got some rain. I wanted to give you a gentle reminder that just because we got some rain, don’t stop watering those trees and lawns.

With the forecast ahead and the stress that all the trees have gone through to date, our arborist in Ottawa says we really need to stay up on watering our trees and lawns. If you have a newly planted tree by Taylor’s or yourself, I would recommend at least watering it two to three times a week with a slow trickle. If you have a five gallon bucket you could always use that, as well. And don’t forget your mature trees, a slow trick or sprinkler around the base of your big trees can make a big difference.
