Are My Trees Thirsty

Everything on our planet needs water to survive, and that includes your trees. Unfortunately, a tree can’t simply ask for or acquire some water whenever it gets thirsty. It’s up to you to recognize the signs and care for your tree if it needs extra water.

Leaves Wilt and Fall — Even in The Summer

When trees get dull and fall off in the autumn, it’s just nature. When it happens during summer and spring, it’s a sign that there’s something wrong. A thirsty tree can’t provide nutrients for the leaves, so the leaves begin to wilt and die.

The leaves can be full of other tell-tale signs, too. They may get discolored or appear to have been “scorched,” and they may become small, underdeveloped, and limp. Meanwhile, needles on conifer trees may suffer and change color as well.

Dry, Cracking Bark

Most trees already have dry bark, but if a tree is dehydrated, you’ll notice the bark becoming more brittle and prone to cracking.

Dry Near the Stump

Dry soil tends to mean thirsty plants, and if you notice that the soil is particularly tough and restrictive when you stick something into it, the tree is in need of water. In fact, checking to see if the soil is moist is a good way to ensure all of your plants are hydrated properly.

Not Watered Enough

Smaller plants, such as flowers, berry bushes, and herbs, won’t need as much water as a tree does. Even if you’ve already used a sprinkler all over your yard, give your tree some extra attention and water.
