Water Is the Life Blood of Your Landscape
Water typically enters a tree and is absorbed through osmosis by the roots. It is indeed the lifeblood of the tree. A tree’s roots work to absorb water and all types of nutrients in order to prosper.
The water then travels throughout the tree including the leaves via photosynthesis. Since water is so important to the survival of a tree it’s very important that you make sure it’s properly cared for.
Watering a tree is something most homeowners either do too little of or too much of. Both of those variables can permanently damage your tree. In hotter areas where drought is a potential factor, it’s important that you provide your trees with plenty of water and care or else they will die.
