Watering Tips for trees | Waukesha Landscaping

Water should be applied to established trees once a month during the winter and as often as once a week during the heat of the summer. Water should be applied at the tree’s drip line and beyond. Trees adapted to drier climates need far less irrigation than other species. If Mother Nature provides enough precipitation to wet the soil two to three feet deep, don’t apply additional water. If Mother Nature’s precipitation falls short of a full soaking, apply only enough additional water to wet the soil two to three feet deep. Apply water slowly so that it sinks deeply into the soil . Soaker hoses, drip emitters, bubblers, and hand-held hoses are preferable to sprinklers. Mulch the soil around a tree trunk (but not so closely that the mulch touches the trunk). A layer of mulch keeps the soil moist and reduces weeds that compete for water. Organic mulches, such as bark or wood chips, keep the soil cooler but can absorb water that could otherwise get to tree roots. Inorganic mulches, such as gravel, are a fine choice for native and adapted trees that can tolerate the increase in soil and air temperature
