treesTrees Need Water...Yes, Still.
Another reminder to please help us maintain our urban forest

The City of Burlingame Parks Division encourages residents to remember to water their City trees as well as their private property trees especially during these warm months in order to help maintain our beautiful urban forest. Younger trees should receive at least 5 gallons of water every other week, not only to keep the tree from dying, but also to help the young tree grow and remain healthy throughout its life cycle. Likewise, all trees should receive regular watering, particularly during dry weather conditions. We are aware of recent drought restrictions but are asking residents to assist us in maintaining our beautiful urban forest by remembering to water.
A new Tree Inventory boasts a total of 16,250 City owned trees in the City of Burlingame, and for the last 36 years, the City of Burlingame (also known as "The City of Trees") has received the Tree City USA award. Our sincere thanks, as we all work together to maintain this important and prestigious recognition. If you should have any questions regarding City or Private Trees, please contact the Parks Division at (650) 558-7330.
