the worlds largest tree need?

    One of the biggest trees, the Coastal Redwood, use 600 quarts of water each summer day.

    That may not be the greediest tree, but it gives you an idea.

    Of course, trees don’t always get what they want!

    If you were looking for maximum consumption for some single tree, you’d look at a very large tree, in summer. (‘Cause the above answer, even though it doesn’t say so, is for some “typical” redwood.) A really huge tree, needy, suddenly getting a “water fix” … you can imagine that tree might gulp two or three times the normal amount of water in one day, if it could get it.

    So … maybe put the upward limit at something like 1800 quarts. (450 gallons!)
