DPW Recommends Tree Watering

Tree with Tree Gator attachedThe Town of Reading Department of Public Works is recommending residents water their newly planted trees once or twice a week through late fall. The severe drought has stressed all trees, especially those planted within the last five years. The trees should receive 15 to 20 gallons of water slowly.

The TreeGator bags are very effective, easy to use and can be purchased at any home improvement store. Do not overwater. Twice a week is sufficient.
