The trees must be watered 2x (at least) during dry, sunny, or windy weather. Waterers sign up for one shift (early or late) on one weekday (Mon-Fri). You will water the trees on your assigned day at around the assigned time for 3 weeks (2 if you sign up for Friday). (i.e. every Monday at 10:00am).
The trees will be "tarped" to help hold in moisture and keep the sun off of them. All you have to do is lift the bottom of the tarp and spray upwards!
If it is raining outside, you don't need to water.
If you'll miss your shift, please contact Mike (512-282-7274, [email protected])!
Tree Lot Maintenance:
Sign up to help with maintenance for one week in the tree lot. Duties include:
- filling in any waterer shifts that are not covered
- checking on the lot a couple of times a week to clean up trash, make sure the trees are spaced out so the wires aren't buckling, get more trees out of the corrals if necessary, etc.
Tree Lot Trainers:
Sign up to be on our official list of trainers. If someone is scheduled to open the lot but has not been trained, you might be called in to offer assistance. (Especially needed during weekday evenings.)
Thanks for your support!
