Water has been found to be the most limiting factor for plant growth and stress reduction.  How much water does a tree use or need? Generally, 1 inch of water per 10 day period is needed to reduce stress on trees.  This can be provided by Mother Nature, or you.  Use a rain gauge to monitor rainfall and supplement with watering when necessary. It is strongly suggested to use your finger to check the soil for moisture. If the soil is damp wait a few days and check again. Avoid overhead watering or light frequent watering which can be problematic. Pines and spruces with fungal diseases are best not watered on the foliage. Supplemental watering when dry in June, July, August and September is critical.
