Spring & Summer Tree Watering Schedule

Methods for watering include a soaker hose, deep root fork, deep root needle or soft spray wand. Apply water to many locations under dripline. For evergreens, water 3-5' beyond the dripline on all sides of the tree. If a deep root fork or needle is used, insert the device no deeper than 8" into the soil.

The water schedules below are suggested for Spring and Summer months (April-September). Determine the diameter of your tree, and water it for the amount of time noted below.
