Introducing the STL TreeLC Watering App!

Urban spaces are challenging environments for newly planted trees. High summer temperatures make periods of little rain a matter of life and death. The STL TreeLC Watering App empowers residents to help provide these essential assets the care to survive.

Key features include:

Tree Locator: GPS helps residents discover “baby” trees near them. Users can access a citywide map that highlights these trees, to identify and monitor them.

Tree Care Guidelines: provides care instructions and tips to ensure residents are equipped with the knowledge to provide optimal care.

Watering Reminders: Easily opt in/out of email/text push notifications for gentle reminders when to water their “adopted” trees.
