Rainfall Diary 2012

SUMMER 2012 RAINFALL DIARY
This is a resource for the volunteer tree waterers in the Adopt A Tree program.  When I'm not in town to update it daily, check Environment Canada's Toronto Island (our nearest station) weather data HERE.

General Info:  Each sapling tree needs at least 25mm (1") of rain which is equivalent to 5 gallons (20 litres) of water per week (7 days).  It's better for the tree to get one deep watering than several small waterings.  In the first year of planting and in very hot weather the young trees need twice that amount.

Chart of rainfall in "mm" in the past 7 days:
When the 7-day total in column "C" is less than 25mm (1") the tree is in urgent need of watering -- there is a "watering alert".  After an extremely dry July, August, so far, has brought some rain which is bringing back the green to the park.  Please keep in mind though, that the young trees still don't have roots deep enough to thrive without a full inch of rain or 5 gallons of water at least once every seven days.  And we want them to really thrive, right?
