How to Plant a Tree

Step 6:
Just Add Water


New trees need approximately 15 to 20 gallons of water at the time of planting, depending on how dry the soil is. See our maintenance tips under the next step to learn more about when and how much to water your tree.

Helpful Hint:

  • 10 minutes of a hose on medium pressure = about 20 gallons of water
  • Use a bucket to measure gallons
  • Use a Gator Bag during the summer. These usually hold 20 gallons of water.
