Tree watering is a key component of effective tree care. Recommending an exact amount is difficult, due to the variation in climates and soil types. However, there are a few basic rules that will help guide you in watering your trees properly. We will set in place for you the guidelines to follow, including a watering schedule that is going to work for you.
When your tree is planted, our professionals will water it at that time. We will soak the root ball and we will also soak the hole and get rid of the air pockets that are in it so that it can adapt to the new soil. We do a watering method that allows a slow, 45-minute trickle. You will need to do this with a hose or have a bubbler installed at the base of your tree, as your sprinkler system will not work. We want to completely saturate the soil and then let the tree completely dry out before saturating it again. 90% of trees that fail in the first year is due to under or over watering.
(This is a guideline that will need change depending on the rainfall at the time)
Watering Instructions for Balled and Burlap Trees
Follow these guidelines for the first 12 months, as long as you are dealing with average rainfall conditions. If you are facing drought conditions, you will need to change the watering schedule. You can call us and ask us about that. In the second year, you can revise the watering schedule by adding four to seven days to all of the time frames listed above. Be aware that when trees are over watered, they tend to turn color and will slowly go from a green to a pale green, and from there to a tan or a brown. This will generally start at the base or the middle of the tree. Trees that are becoming too dry tend to fade in color just slightly and will display leaves with tinged or brown edges. If mistakes are made in watering, it’s better to under-water than to over-water trees.
