No matter how obvious it may be, it is important to reiterate the fact that trees need water to survive. This means if a drought comes to town, it is up to us to protect our beloved flora and tree landscaping from dehydration and death.

You see, the soil in the Earth’s ground retains an abundant amount of nutrients that trees need to grow and yield crop. Fertilizing a tree only adds more nutrients, which is really not needed because the soil has enough already. You wouldn’t show up to a birthday party with an extra cake, would you? Although it doesn’t hurt to have extra, it really isn’t necessary. At times, actually, it can be detrimental; tree fertilization that is. Too much tree food can lead to tree diseases, or dying and dead trees. Also, when it rains, excess tree fertilizer can be swept into local rivers and ponds, polluting our town’s water.
