Tips To Keep Your Trees Healthy

Trees five years and older have already established a great root system and should flourish much better than younger trees.

Irrigation in Old and Young Trees

1-2 Years Old
Irrigation is very important, especially for young trees! Keep in mind that the younger the tree the more water it would need to grow its root system deep into the soil. It’s vital that the soil stays moist food at all times, “NOT DRENCHED” but moist. Watering the tree at the base 5 times a for the first year, this will allow the tree to be able to expand the root system freely and not stressing the tree into a state of shock. For trees that are two years and younger, you want to use a water hose for about 5 to 10 minutes make sure to use a circular motion on top of the mulch to ensure that you get proper irrigation.
2-8 Years Old
For trees that are from 2 to 8 years old the same applies open holes irrigating for at least 5 to 10 minutes three times a week.
10+ Years Old
For trees that are 10 years and older, you don’t need to do much other than either allow the irrigation system from your lawn to feed the tree on a regular basis. Or you can water the base of the tree at the trunk in a circular motion at least 6 feet in diameter once a week for 5-8 minutes.
