In the current hot spell, please help our young trees establish by watering them.
Waltham Forest tree service waters the newly planted trees - but any extra help we can give them is always welcome.
Each tree is planned to be watered every two weeks between May and September inclusive and more if it’s needed, but the current weather conditions are hard on young trees and extra help to establish them is a good way to get involved in making our borough even greener.
Residents are encouraged to add water directly into the watering bag if you can get to it and fill to the top using a watering can or bucket - or try to apply water carefully to the pit directly, slowly allowing the water sink in and not run off the soil surface.
Water as often as you like, but please be mindful of local water authority restrictions.
Watering in the cooler evenings is better than in the midday heat, but any watering is welcome.
