La Crosse, Wisconsin (WXOW) - If you haven't kept up on watering your trees and plants, its not too late. Some plants have a natural protection. They will drop leaves to conserve energy for example. But, trees can be deceiving. Most won't show damage this year. According to Trees Today, the damage from this year's heat will show up next year. But the most important thing is to remember to water your plants.
Owner of Trees Today, Jeff Bredlau, had this advice, "Running sprinklers do not water trees, that's another myth we keep hearing. Sprinklers are designed for grass. You would have to run a sprinkler all day long to water trees. You have to lay a water hose by it, let it run at a slow trickle and it will water a tree."
Jeff says you should water your trees and plants at least two or three times a week and trees take between 10 and 20 gallons each time you water.
