Watering Guide for New Trees
The ideal time to plant a tree is in the late fall or winter when they're dormant, but they can be planted any time. New trees benefit from 3 or 4 inches of mulch to keep moisture in.
Using your hands, shape loose soil into a circular mound around the tree. The bowl shape helps pool water, which trickles down onto the roots with minimal runoff. After planting, water thoroughly, allowing a hose to slowly drip at the tree's base for an hour or two. For the first few weeks, new trees need several soakings.
