How can I tell if my tree needs more water?

    How much water your tree needs depends on both the species of tree and the weather conditions or environment in which it is planted. However, there are some general rules of thumb one can follow which should help guide your watering patterns, and then you should be able to judge based on your observations how much water the tree needs. In general, a low frequency in watering is only once per month, moderate twice per month, and high three times. These numbers assume you are watering 18-24 inches beneath the soil which is the depth to the roots. You should soak the soil each watering to insure that the water reaches it’s roots. If the soil dries and hardens soon after watering your tree may need to be watered more frequently, especially if the leaves turn brown and begin to fall.
