Watering of Boulevard Street Trees Bordering Your Home or Business
Our street trees need your help to stay hydrated during our hottest months! Our Parks team is appreciative of those who are able to help water the trees in the boulevard/street bordering your home or business.
Residents can purchase a slow-release watering bag from the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre for $10/bag (up to two per household). It is beneficial for street trees to receive 15 gallons of water twice a week.
