The benefits of trees and shrubs are endless. Trees, shrubs, and evergreens provide shade, privacy, noise barriers and added protection from the wind and snow. Fruit, flowering and shade trees, evergreens and deciduous shrubs not only add beauty to your landscape, they add value to your property as well. Well-placed trees and shrubs can reduce energy usage during the hot summer months. Trees can shield children from ultra-violet rays. Trees and shrubs give beautiful spring blooms, lush green foliage in summer and a rainbow of colorful displays in the fall.

How to Water Trees - Especially Newly Planted

Trees

  • If you are planting late Fall – water once a week until the ground is frozen.
  • Large trees may need higher amounts of water; the bigger the plant, the more the shock to it when it is transplanted.
  • After the first week - 2 gallons per caliper inch once a week while temperatures are below 80° and 2 times/ week when above 80°

2”+ Caliper (Diameter, Chest High) Trees

  • Newly planted - 15 gallons every other day for first week (1st, 3rd, 5th day).

1” Caliper and Smaller Trees

  • Newly planted - 5 gallons every other day for first week (1st, 3rd, 5th day).
