Monthly Tree Reminders: July


  • Continue regular watering of newly planted trees.

  • July, August and September are traditionally Missoula’s hottest and driest months. Be sure to check soil moisture at a 4-6” depth within the tree’s root zone. If the soil is dry, it’s time to water. 

  • If trees are damaged during strong summer storms, consult a certified arborist to evaluate and correct any wounds vulnerable to insect or disease entry. Remove any hanging or dangerous limbs and branches.

  • Keep trees protected from mower and weed trimmer damage with a large mulch ring or caging.

  • Keep an eye out for signs of insects or disease. Not all insects are pests. Consult Missoula County Weed District & Extension’s website at for more information.
