Summertime Watering Tips (Part 1 of 3)

Summertime Watering Tips (Part 1 of 3)

Sure, it’s getting hot out there, but please don’t forget about those new trees you worked hard to plant this fall and winter! The first two years after planting is the most critical time to water your trees, especially during our hot, dry summers. Getting newly planted trees well established early can ensure their healthy growth for years to come, making for less maintenance needs and costs in the future. Young trees should be watered once or twice a week during the growing season if there is limited rainfall, with the average 5-gallon tree requiring up to 15-20 gallons of water per week.
