To help prevent trees uprooting, you need to water less frequently, say once a week, twice during hot weather and water for longer periods of time. This will cause the water to go deeper, then a short watering. Depending on the size of the tree, say 20-30 min. Do not turn the water on high or it won’t be able to soak in to the ground. You can water low for 30-40 min once a week and the tree will have deeper roots. Watering frequently for less time causes the roots to stay closer to the surface, which can also over heat the roots causing them to need more water. At least this is what I have read and been told by a few different nurseries. Hope this helps. 😀
I love this site.
I pray that no one was hurt and that those who suffered damage from the storm recover quickly. God bless you guys. Remember
NO BAD DAYS.
