Ask Mr. Answer Person: "Who is supposed to be watering the new trees in downtown Decorah?"

Posted: Tue, Sep 10, 2013 11:00 AM

Jan e-mails:  "Have any of the downtown store owners been watering the sidewalk trees in this dry weather?   Some look dehydrated to me. They need a lot more water than one might think in a dry period like this.  If they get too dry, they are dead."

Mr. Answer Person says: "The trees get watered when they are planted--but that was awhile ago for even the newest trees.  So your suggestion is a good one, Jan.  Tree experts tell us the trees could benefit from getting even a gallon of water a day.  So if any business owner wants to take on the watering as a project, it would be appreciated.
