Here's what you need to know about watering your new tree:

New trees must receive 1 to 2 inches of water weekly for the first two years during the growing season. Since this is crucial for the plant’s survival we suggest that one of the best ways to water is by leaving your water hose on at a ‘trickle’ for several hours. Slow watering allows the water to soak into the soil and allows the tree roots to become more deeply established.
