Lack of rain has left the area's trees in dire need of water.

"We're in a terrible drought situation and it would be beneficial for people to keep watering their trees once a week until it freezes," said Cheryl Wilke, with Flying W Gardens. "The trees are wilting and they are stressed."


She attended a Park Rapids Urban Forestry Committee meeting Thursday morning and expressed her concerns, especially for boulevard trees in the city.
