The watering rates in the table will help you make good decisions about watering the trees once they become established.

In southwestern Idaho, supplemental irrigation is essential in landscapes using non-native plants. Water is the single most important factor for tree survival and growth. All the metabolic processes that occur within a tree depend on water.

During the growing season, trees constantly lose water to the atmosphere through transpiration — the loss of water vapor through leaf pores (stomata). In the heat of summer, it has been estimated that a large deciduous tree can use more than 100 gallons of water a day! If this water loss is not replaced, it can cause non- recoverable tissue damage and lead to tree decline, making the tree susceptible to pests and diseases. The importance and value of trees in a landscape cannot be overemphasized. Tree health, therefore, should be at the forefront of any irrigation regime.
