MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The City of Minneapolis is urging residents to water their trees every week throughout the rest of the summer and fall.

City officials say yard and boulevard trees should receive at least an inch of water every week in which it doesn’t rain.

The heavy rainfall from spring and early summer, coupled with the extremely dry conditions that followed, has stressed trees – making them vulnerable to disease and insects.

The city says a slow stream of water is ideal for the trees, and evening hours are preferred due to minimal evaporation at that time of day.
