Particularly during summer months and during this drought, it's important to stay informed on the proper care of Valley Oak trees.
Every year, our Parks & Urban Forestry Division works with the local media to discuss the importance of proper care and watering, as well as to answer questions that frequently come up about Valley Oak trees care and maintenance.
If you missed the original editorial pieces in the Visalia Times Delta or the Valley Voice Newspaper, you're able to access the archived discussion on our Valley Oak Ordinance page.
Please remember, when caring for your Valley Oaks, other trees and landscaping, it's important to follow the City of Visalia watering ordinance. To check your days to water, visit the Public Works Department page.
