DC Adopt-a-Tree Program Gives Away Tree Watering Bags

With a predicted heat wave on the way and temperatures expected to hit perhaps as high as 100 degrees, newly planted trees will be in dire need of water. To encourage people to water these trees, the DC government is giving away watering bags. To receive the free 20-25 gallon bags, you must read and sign the Canopy Keeper Agreement. You can submit the signed form by scanning it and sending it as an email attachment to regina.richardson @ dc.gov or by printing and mailing the form to:

Urban Forestry Administration
District Department of Transportation
55 M Street, SE, Suite 600
Washington, DC 20003

You can adopt as many as four trees. Along with watering bags you will also receive printed instructions about how often to water and other tree care tips. You can learn more about the Adopt-a-Tree program by clicking here.
