Watering Tips for Your Trees
The two best tips to follow when it comes to watering your trees are 1) Your tree shouldn’t have too much water and 2) Your tree shouldn’t have too little water. Confusing yet?
It’s not as simple as it sounds, if you’re not working with a tree care company you’ll want to check the soil and feel around to determine whether or not your tree needs weather. Circumstances such as weather, location, and species also important in deciding whether or not watering is needed.
Too much water can practically drown a tree and too little water can starve a tree. The best method for DIY is checking to see how the soil feels. If it’s dry and clumpy, you’re going to want to start watering it. If the soil is wet and sticky, you should let the tree absorb that moisture for a few days until it needs water again.
