Where do I water?

Tree roots spread out farther than the tree is tall. Ideally, you could move the hose around the drip zone while watering, but studies have shown the highest concentration of absorption roots per a volume of soil is near the base of the tree. Turn the water on at a rate that sinks into the soil. At that rate, time how long it takes to fill a one gallon container. This is your calibration for how long to leave the water on. Place the hose at the base of the tree until you reach your desired watering goal.
