How do I care for my town street tree?

The City of Groton chooses trees that are able to sustain dry spells and survive our unique urban climate; however, their establishment is dependent on how they do during the first few years of life. Young trees require a substantial amount of water to thrive. Public Works dispatches crews to water newly planted trees, but depends on Groton City residents to water their street trees during dry spells.
