Watering Alert: Week of June 4, 2014


NORMAL: Indianapolis received plenty of rain this week therefore watering is not needed.

Indianapolis received over the recommended 1-inch of rainfall this week so trees should not need more watering. With a rainy start to June, your trees received the water they’ve been wanting! Trees need 15 gallons of water per week to thrive – especially trees younger than 5 years old.

The forecast is projected to be warmer and slightly cloudy with a few scattered thunderstorms for the next five days in Indianapolis. Keep an eye out for days where your tree might need a little extra attention!

Tweet @kibiorg with the hashtag #thirstytrees or send us a message on Facebook to let us know how your watering efforts are going. Take the KIB Watering Pledge, and help us water Indy’s trees!
