SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Communities all over California are reminding residents to take care of their trees, even in this historic drought.
Leaders from both the City of Roseville and the City of Sacramento said it's all about smart watering to keep these investments alive.
Roseville now has watering trucks that are injecting what they refer to as high valued trees and other city landscapes. They are doing this with recycled water. The goal is to maintain Roseville's healthy tree canopy without dipping into our drinking water supply. Experts said the technology they use ensures every drop goes exactly where it needs to.
The City of Sacramento is also encouraging neighbors to keep their trees healthy. Kelly Conroy with the Sacramento Tree Foundation said it's important to water outside wisely.
