Tree Watering Campaign Launched Today

Today, 1st May 2020, the Arboricultural Association, London Tree Officers Association (LTOA), Municipal Tree Officers Association (MTOA) and the Association of Tree Officers (ATO) have launched a campaign to ensure that newly planted trees are watered regularly over the summer months, highlighting the fact that young tree maintenance is just as important as planting.

The dry weather in April has raised the question about how trees might be affected by COVID-19, if those people who ordinarily water them are no longer able to do so. Hundreds of thousands of trees have been planted over the last couple of years, but without proper aftercare they will not make it into maturity.

You can find out more about how you can help by visiting the Arboricultural Associations website, you will also find links to download the campaign poster and tree tags.
