Trees and water are both precious resources. Trees make our houses feel like home–they also improve property values, clean our water and air, and even make our streets safer and quieter. When we water wisely and maintain our trees carefully, we enjoy a wide range of benefits at a low cost and with little effort.

Take a look at this info graphic prepared by the California Urban Forests Council to learn how to help your trees survive this fourth year of extreme drought.

And please keep in mind that CCWD is allowing customers to water trees, shrubs, vegetables gardens and drought-tolerant landscaping that is being established three days a week instead of two (the third day is discretionary). Turf and other annual ornamental landscaping is still limited to two days per week.
