How much water for a new smoke tree?

frdnicholas(Albuquerque NM)April 1, 2011

I have a smoke tree in its second year in the ground. It has tiny little leaves coming out the top. Do these trees require alot of water or just an even amount during the growing season?

They require an average amount of water. Watering deeply once a week should do it. When the tree is well-established you could go to every 2 weeks. Also a monthly deep watering thru the winter and your Smoke tree should be awesome.

That's the same schedule I've used for my new trees - I'm in Bosque Farms - although if they are really small with a small root ball I watered more than once a week during the first summer - just checked the rootball to see if it was moist or not and never let the rootball dry out completely. I do mulch my trees pretty heavily and have a pretty good sized well around them.
