Gieß den Kiez – “Water your neighbourhood” – is a platform for
coordinating the watering of Berlin’s trees.
The map shows almost all street and park trees with specific information for each tree, such as its estimated water demand, age and species. It further invites all citizens to parti-
cipate in watering our struggling tree population. Citizens can inform themselves about the water demand of trees in their neighbourhood, mark when and how much they have watered and “subscribe” to trees that they regularly take care of. The calculation of the water needs of an individual tree also includes up-to-date precipitation data. Currently, the map depicts about 625,000 trees.
