Please, share a drink with our trees

watering canGuelph’s newly planted trees (less than three years old) can become distressed from the warm, dry weather we experience during the summer.

The City of Guelph urges residents to water any newly planted tree that is close to your home or place of business. Just 20 litres of water on a regular basis — that’s two pails or two minutes with a garden hose — will help preserve this natural resource.

Trees are precious. They clean our air and our water and make Guelph a great place to call home.

Guelph’s Outside Water Use Program doesn’t restrict tree, shrub, flower or garden watering during Level 0 Blue and Level 1 Yellow conditions, and allows for alternate day and time watering restrictions during Level 2 Red.
