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?
It's World Water Week and the theme for this year is innovative solutions for a water-wise world. We're calling on Tree Watering Champions to join us in caring for our urban trees so that they can flourish.
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.
Young and newly planted trees need regular watering to survive during their first few years. Council-planted trees may be watered too, but all trees will benefit from extra watering.
Have a look at our video and poster below with all the info you need on how to water a thirsty urban tree!
Water you waiting for?
If you volunteered at one of our planting days near you, why not go back and water them - they will thank you for it!

You can also get involved in the Trees for Streets' Watering Wednesdays, which sees residents hit the streets mid-week to give their street trees some love—like the hero below!
