Newly planted and young trees need extra water during hot, dry summer months. You can help young trees flourish and grow by providing 25 gallons of water each week between the 4th of July and Labor Day.

There are several different methods for watering young trees. Each way is effective so choose the method that’s most convenient for you. It is important to water newly planted and young trees regularly during the summer.
