Oregon's weather this spring and summer has been anything but the norm. It's a good time to take stock of the numerous water-starved trees being seen in communities and urban centers, and give them a little extra help and water. Trees and forests enhance the quality of life here in Oregon in many ways, providing shade, wildlife habitat, clean air, wood and other products, and clean and healthy streams, as well as raising property values. Given their benefits, longevity, and contributions, make watering trees a high priority during Oregon's dry summers.
