Great observations and questions.
Thank you.


From the city e-newsletter:

The City of Burlingame Parks Division encourages residents to water their City trees, as well as their private property trees, especially during these warm summer months. Watering will help maintain our beautiful urban forest. As a general rule of thumb, younger trees should receive at least five gallons of water every week, not only to keep the tree from dying, but also to help the young tree grow and remain healthy throughout its life cycle.

We are aware of recent drought conditions but are asking residents to assist us in maintaining our beautiful urban forest by remembering to water. All trees should receive regular watering, particularly during dry weather conditions.

Our citywide tree inventory boasts a total of 16,166 City-owned trees. Burlingame (also known as “The City of Trees”) has received the Tree City USA award for the last 42 years. The Parks Division extends its sincerest thanks as we all work together to maintain this important and prestigious recognition. Please contact the Parks Division at 650-558-7330 if you have any questions.
Get the water while you can. I'm giving 5:1 odds we go to "voluntary restrictions" this summer.
