**La Tejana Tree
Sales Tree Watering Guide**

Here are some general guidelines to follow when caring for your tree after it has been installed.

Newly planted trees and younger trees will require more frequent watering versus an older/mature and/or well established tree.

**How to Water Properly:**

- La Tejana Tree Sales crew will complete the first watering at the time of planting.
- Do not water tree(s) at a fast rate. The water flow should be a slow to medium rate for the benefit of the newly planted tree(s).
- A newly planted tree should be watered and monitored regularly.
- An established tree (after 16 months of planting) should be watered according to the seasons, weather conditions, size of tree, soil type, etc.

**Amount
of Water per Size of Tree:**

*This is an
approximate guide to help the customer care for their tree(s). Over watering
and under watering will cause tree(s) to go into shock and/or cause tree(s) to
decline. The weather, soil conditions, location of tree(s), species of tree(s),
etc. can change the amount of watering.*
