Fall Tree Watering

As trees are preparing for winter; deep watering may help their well-being during the cold winter months as well as at beginning of next spring. The majority of Alberta is dry with very little moisture during September and October with many trees that are experiencing water deficiency during these months. The main reason for watering in fall prior to winter is that water acts as an insulator to the soil and most importantly to the roots of trees. Cold air around the root system will greatly damage/kill roots causing branch dieback or eventually kill the tree.
