The Impacts of Drought on Trees:
Drought weakens trees, making them more susceptible to diseases and pests. Water stress can cause stunted growth, leaf discoloration, reduced canopy density, and decline in overall health. In severe cases, prolonged drought can even lead to tree mortality. The significant decrease in available water resources worldwide exacerbates these adverse effects, making it crucial for landscapers & homeowners to take proactive measures to protect their trees.
Moon Valley Nurseries' Approach:
Recognizing the detrimental impact of water scarcity on trees in our areas, Moon Valley Nurseries has adopted a multi-faceted approach to safeguard its tree inventory. The nursery employs cutting-edge irrigation techniques and skilled horticulturalists who oversee every aspect of tree care, from planting to maintenance.  If we need to adjust our watering and fertilizing, you, as a homeowner, need to adjust yours as well.  
Water-efficient Irrigation Systems:
Moon Valley Nurseries understands the importance of water conservation while maintaining healthy tree growth. To achieve this delicate balance, the nursery has invested in advanced irrigation systems, such as drip irrigation and sensory-based watering technologies. These systems reduce water wastage significantly, ensuring that each tree receives the precise amount of water it requires, thereby maximizing tree survival rates.  
Drought-resistant Tree Varieties:
While water conservation practices play a crucial role in mitigating the effects of drought, we also focus on providing customers with a wide range of tree & plant species that exhibit drought resistance. By offering trees that have evolved to withstand dry spells, we enable clients to make informed choices when selecting trees for their landscapes.
Customer Education:
One of our most valuable initiatives involves educating customers about the adverse impacts of drought on trees and providing them with best practices for tree care in arid climates. By sharing expertise and knowledge, we empower customers to contribute to the preservation of our landscapes and the long-term health of their trees. Ask our nursery professionals for a free consultation on your property to get the exact plants you need to succeed.
Partnerships with Environmental Organizations:
To further augment their efforts, we actively collaborate with environmental organizations to address the consequences of drought at a larger scale. By initiating partnerships with regional water conservation agencies and participating in tree planting programs, we aim to foster sustainable tree management practices on a broader level.
