Tree Aftercare and Maintenance
How much water do I need to give to newly planted trees?
Watering a tree adequately in its first year is critical to the survival and successful establishment of the tree.
Our guide as to how much water different size trees require can be found in our Tree Aftercare and Maintenance guide
However the soil type you plant your tree into also needs to be taken into account, a tree planted into a light sandy soil will be free draining and will require more water, whilst a heavier loam / clay soil is likely to hold the water a little better and require a little less.
Throw in weather conditions and the volume of water mother nature provides, which can obviously vary enormously, and you must conclude that your trees need a flexible maintenance programme to be put in place.
