A Simple Guide to Watering Trees During a Drought

Just like any plants, trees also require proper care. Simply watering them will give them a higher chance of survival, especially during a drought. So how much water does a tree need in order to survive?

Generally speaking, every tree needs approximately 25 gallons of water per week. To supply this amount of water, use a garden hose with slow water flowing around your tree within 8 hours. Another way is to use a hose with mini holes and surround it with your tree within 6 to 8 hours. Do this once a week.

Take note that the water amount still depends on the tree size, soil condition, and weather in your area. It’s best to ask a professional or an expert regarding this matter. Check out the informative video below for more details and tips.
