8/22 Please water the young trees in your street!
Quite a number of streets in Muswell Hill, Fortis Green & Alexandra have young trees which have been planted by Haringey Council.
Some are struggling to survive in the prolonged dry spell. Regular watering during the summer months in the first three years after planting is critical for the establishment of a newly planted tree.
Please check outside your front door and along your street and if you have a young tree nearby and can help, please give it some water regularly in this dry period. Often, the young trees have a water pipe in the ground and it is best to pour some water down the pipe and around ther base.
The Arboricultural Association has a useful “Young Tree Watering” poster which you can find HERE.
