Nancy Merrill, the Lorax of Wallingford, asked us to post this reminder that it’s time to make sure your young trees are getting enough water, kindly set to verse:
Spring Forward, Bucket in Hand
One fish, two fish
Water street trees when you take out
Five gallon-ish per trunk diameter inch
Every week dear Wallyfish
Rain or shine starting now.
One block, your street
My ave, their place
Happy trees aren’t choked by sod.
Some are high and some are low
Not one of them is like another
Be a friend to the trees
Oh me! Oh my!
With apologies to Theodor Seuss Geisel
