Summer TipsSummer can be stressful for trees due to heat and low rainfall. Make sure you watch your trees for signs of trouble.

Planting
Trees can be planted in summer as long as you are willing to water diligently. However, there is a greater chance that the transplanted tree will be damaged or die due to the heat. Try to plant in fall or spring instead if possible.

Watering
Summer is the hottest and driest of the seasons. You will need to watch your trees more carefully, especially in times of drought. Keep an eye out for wilting. You may want to set up a watering system to help keep your trees watered enough.
