Tree Care Tips: Weeds and Weeding

Weeding your site, although not as important as watering, is still essential. Both street trees and greenstreets live in very small spaces that provide limited amounts of soil and nutrients. Weeds are fast-growing and fast-reproducing plants that tend to dominate space and sap resources from the plants intended for the site. If weeds are left untended, they will ultimately kill some plants and stress others. Thus weeds should be removed from greenstreets and street tree pits as frequently as possible.
