Water your trees and don’t overprune them.
Those were two primary takeaways from ‘Tree Care During Drought Forum’ held on Nov 12 in Redlands CA. The forum featured Dave Roger, a consultant urban forester who has worked with several Southern California cities. This includes Claremont CA which this year won a significant award for its program to save drought-stricken trees. The event was sponsored by the Inland Empire Resource Conservation District and the Redlands Sustainability Network.
