Maintaining Your New Tree In Hot Summer Conditions

You’ve planted that new tree and you’re ready for it to provide some shade or fruit. 


University of Illinois Extension Horticulture Educator Andrew Holsinger is providing tips on how to take care of that new tree. He says dry weather can mean you need to pay close attention.

The location and species of tree depend on what you need from your tree.

Tree species native to Illinois are best suited for drought conditions if they occur. 

Holsinger recommends an arborist if your tree is experiencing ailments. Treesaregood.org can help you find an arborist.
