Do mature maple trees need watering? Mature Trees
Mature maple trees need less frequent watering, as they are established and have extensive root systems that can capture water efficiently. About 1-1/2 inches of water weekly can sustain mature maples.
How much water does a maple tree use per day?
About 10 gallons per 1 inch (2.5 cm) of trunk diameter per week (ex., a tree with 12″ DBH would receive 120 gallons) during drought. If there is unlimited water, there are records of trees absorbing 150 gallons of water in a single day.
Should you water new trees in the fall?
Young or newly planted trees are much more susceptible to drought injury during the winter months. Make sure they are well watered through the summer and fall up until the ground freezes, and water every couple of weeks during the winter when there is no snow cover.
Why are the leaves on my maple tree curling?
Lack of water, sunburn, temperature stress, disease, or pests are the main causes of maple leaves curling, including Japanese maple. To fix leaf curl, water the maple when the surface is 1.5 to 2 inches dry, provide partial shade for Japanese maple. Also spray the leaves with Neem oil and fungicide.
