Trees on your property can benefit from regular watering. This is especially true for younger and less established specimens. We suggest watering your trees twice a week during the growing season (early spring to late fall) twice per week. Place your hose at the base of the tree and let the water trickle for 15-20 minutes.

Trees will be more vigorous, more resilient, and grow stronger with a strong and established root system. Your fruit trees especially will thank you later on with stronger growth and more abundant yields.
