WATER YOUR TREES AND SHRUBS!!! For the second year in a row, our landscape trees and shrubs might be facing a dry fall. The Twin Cities has been toast dry most of August. The drought last fall and subsequent snow-less winter raised havoc with woody plants of all ages. This spring many leafed out poorly or late, if at all. Most people will remember to water newly planted (and paid for) woody plants, at least at first, Why risk the time and money expended for want of some water'? Established plantings are less likely to get watered, but they can generally get by with weekly rainfall, when there is rain. We tend to think of shade gardens and wooded areas as cool and damp but we forget that soil moisture there can be in short supply due to all the plants that grow in the shade and compete for water. Drought-stressed trees and shrubs are more prone to injury caused by even a normal winter because they are too stressed to go through the long, slow process of shutting down for winter dormancy. They will suffer more dieback, stem cracking, and bark splitting among other things. If your woody plants are already turning fall color, it means they are shutting down from stress, not winter dormancy. Gary Johnson, Extension Specialist in Urban and Community Forestry, urges folks to keep the upper 6-8" of the soil around their trees and shrubs moist. If you've not been watering your woody plants, it may take a good bit of water to attain that depth of soil moisture. For newly planted trees and shrubs, Johnson advises watering every 2 to 3 days. For every inch of stem caliper, apply 1.5 gallons of water and just pour it over the football area. So a "2 inch" tree needs 3 gallons every two to three days. If the soil is poorly drained, the plants may need water less often. In drier soils, they may need to be watered daily. Mulch will help conserve moisture. Laying a hose against the trunk of the established tree in the front yard doesn't do much good as the feeder roots are located away from the trunk. For every inch of trunk diameter, as measured 4.5 feet up from the ground, you need to water one to 1.5 feet of root radius• So, for a tree that is five inches in diameter, you need to water 5 to 7 feet out from the tree trunk. The tree roots reach further than that but new and very fine feeder roots are located within this area. Johnson prefers to use soaker hoses and says he leaves his run for several hours at a time in his yard. Overhead sprinklers lose a lot of water, but if that's what you have, use them. Right now, the most important thing is to provide water to your woody plants.
