How long does it take a tree to die if it doesn’t get water?

    It really depends on the tree species. However, this article says that they monitored 58,736 trees and 11,095 trees died within 15 to 50 years. They attribute some of the deaths to water stress.

    Without any water at all, a tree might die in a drought after a few months.

    There are studies to estimate water stress on plant species like the second link below. This article says that the tree mortality rate has doubled as fast as every 17 years
