Please Water Your Trees and Shrubbery to Keep Them Green

Extensive wild fires can destroy a great deal of land and property, as seen throughout the west. Fires are burning as close as Medford, OR and Redding, CA. The slopes of our SW Hills neighborhoods are also in danger. This is (and should be) an immediate concern for residents. Please water your trees and shrubbery, including rhododendrons, to keep them alive and green. In years past, summer watering was not as important as it is now, as we experience hotter and drier summers. Dead foliage and dry tall grass are a much greater fire danger than live green plant material. Dry woody matter and dead plants should be cleared away, for at least 8 feet, from the perimeter of any structures. Wildfires also affect our air quality and wildlife survival.
