Tree Care for Dry Conditions

As we all now, it has been very hot and very dry. These are unusual conditions that can significantly distress our trees. Signs of this distress include dropping leaves, branches, and bark.

Beyond their esthetic value, trees provide a cooling effect during these hot St. Louis summers. Please let us all do our part to keep Southampton a beautiful and comfortable neighborhood.

See the City of St. Louis Forestry Division pamphlet Tree Care for recommendations for keeping our trees healthy.

Thank you!
