This heat is killing me!
I don't know how many of you outside Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas are experiencing this, but this summer is the worst ever. Oklahoma's drought is WORSE than the dust bowl of the 1930's. Can't buy any rain. On top of that we have insanely hot temps. 111 degrees today. OKC averages 10 days above 100 each year. We are at something like 19 so far with every day in the forecast the same. May not break till September.
All this to say, this it not good for my new conifers at my new house. All the trees are under 1 year transplanted. I have noticed that many of them are starting to show signs of burn, yellow on needle tips, some brown on the top needles on The west side etc. I am watering at least once a week as needed, and I have also resorted to building burlap screens on the west side of all these trees. Will this be affective in slowing down the burn? Is there anything else i should do to get me through this awful summer? I hope I never experience one of these again.
