Watering Your New Trees

Any effective landscaping project must include tree upkeep, especially when it comes to newly planted trees. After tree work, properly watering your trees is a crucial step in maintaining their long-term health and beauty. One of the most important steps in tree management is the initial watering of a newly transplanted tree. After planting, the tree should receive a thorough watering to help the roots take root and flush out any air pockets.

Overwatering a newly planted tree, however, should be avoided since it might result in root rot. Checking the soil moisture with your fingers is an easy technique to see if the tree needs water. The most typical way to water a tree is to insert a garden hose in the dirt ring around its base, set to low pressure. In order to fill the ring and give the roots time to absorb the water, the water should be slowly released. To acquire the proper pressure from your garden hose, it could take a few tries. If the soil ring breaks, just pack it back in and wait a day before watering the tree once more.

It's crucial to gradually reduce the frequency of watering after the first week, to every other day, then every few days. As a result, the roots will be forced to store more water, resulting in a stronger and more independent root system. Because the ground is moist during the rainy season (May to October), you might not need to water your tree as frequently. To make sure the tree is receiving enough water, it's vital to frequently check the soil's moisture levels.
