Help Medford’s New Trees Survive and Thrive!

The community group, Trees Medford, welcomes Girl Scout families and troops to care for newly planted trees by adopting a tree to water.  The City of Medford waters new trees for one year but, after that, trees are on their own.  Trees Medford is focused on the list of trees planted in 2017 and 2018 which may need some additional watering to  survive and thrive.

BONUS: Adopting a tree to water is a fantastic way for Cadettes to work on the Trees badge.  Step 5 is “help trees thrive.”

To let them know your family or troop plans to adopt a tree, email Trees Medford at TreesMedford@gmail.com

Trees that need watering may also have a tag attached and they should all have gator bags attached that can be filled with hoses, watering cans or jugs. Each one holds 12 gallons and the goal is to water them through October. If there is a tree anyone find that doesn’t have a bag, let Trees Medford know and they will supply them. They recently replaced gator bags on a number of new trees particularly on Governors, Century Street Extension, Auburn Street, and Hastings Park.
