Help Evanston stay green! Trees may take 40 to 100 years to mature. Many trees and shrubs are now water deprived due to the hot, dry weather. They need at least an inch of water per week. So help your private and public (parkway) trees,and shrubs, survive by watering them during dry spells.

On weekdays, please water before 10:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. due to the outdoor watering ban.
