Don't Forget to water your trees during this heat!  Young trees up to 3 or 4 years old need regular watering every week.  Mature trees need deep watering less often.  Remember: water for your trees, not your turf...this means watering for longer periods, but less often.  Frequent shallow watering (i.e. once a day for 10 minutes) is not good for trees or grass!  More information...
