Adopt A City Tree

The La Crosse Parks, Recreation and Forestry department is asking that that residents adopt a tree or trees in your neighborhood during this very dry time by watering them each day for a short period of time. Any extra watering attention given to the trees will help relieve drought stress.

Signs of drought stress are the leaves turning yellow or brown and falling off the tree. This will start in the middle or at the top of the leaf mass.

The most advantageous method of watering these trees and shrubs is to let your garden hose trickle at the base of the tree. Do this for 4-5 hours each time, twice a week, until we receive some substantial rain.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department.
