Bromley Council plants many new trees every year in our Borough. But they need watering, especially in the first three years of their life. Trees are planted with a green hydration sack around them. This sack has a double layer of the green material down one side which opens to form a bag in which water can be poured. The water seeps slowly through the bottom of the bag giving the tree a better chance of absorbing the water. If you see a tree with a green hydration bag around it, it means the tree is still young enough to need watering. So please consider giving trees near where you live a helping hand; you will be rewarded with a beautiful tree for years to come.
