Californians have made great progress in recent years embracing wise water use as a daily habit. But our state's water future remains uncertain due to precipitation variability and a changing climate. It is more critical than ever that Californians work together to Save Our Water and make the world a better place for our children, grandchildren, and future generations.
We need trees, and trees need water. During extended dry periods, it is important to keep them properly irrigated to preserve our needed canopy while saving water. Some water-wise techniques include: watering early in the morning, placing a layer of mulch to help retain soil moisture, watering mature tress 1-2 times per month, and avoiding over pruning.
