Will you be a Tree Watering Champion?

Young and newly planted trees need regular watering in the summer months to survive during their first few years. Will you help us water trees local to you?

All trees planted by Trees for Cities are watered by our team from April - October, but in the summer months we're looking for extra help from the public to water the trees. If you have a tree outside your house, or one that you pass on your daily walk, we'd love your help watering them! As an added bonus, spending time with trees has been shown to have positive effects on your wellbeing.

Have a look at our video and poster below with all the info you need on how to water a thirsty urban tree 🌞💦

Young and newly planted trees need regular watering to survive during their first few years. All trees planted by Trees for Cities are watered by our team from April - October. This year, we will undertake these activities in line with the government's Covid-19 ground maintenance requirements and regulations. Council-planted trees may be watered too, but all trees will benefit from extra watering.

Check out our map, made possible thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery, to see where our projects are located across the UK. If you volunteered at one of our planting days near you, why not go back and water them - they will thank you for it!
