Continue regular watering of newly planted trees.
If you notice signs of drought stress: wilting leaves, scorched leaves on the outer and top of canopy (the leaves furthest from the water); crown dieback from the edges and top, the trees needs water.
Keep an eye out for signs of insects or disease. Not all insects are pests. Consult Missoula County Weed District & Extension’s website at www.missoulaeduplace.org for more information.
Only remove dead, dying, damaged or diseased branches at this time.
