Answer: It sounds as though your new redwood trees are going through a little transplant shock. They should recover within a few short weeks. Water your trees deeply once each week for their first few summers. The easiest way to do this is to build a watering trough or basin beneath each tree by mounding up a few inches of soil in a circle, all the way around your tree (spreading out about 12 inches from the trunk). When it's time to water, fill the basin, allow it to drain, then fill it a second time. This method concentrates the water over the root mass and allows it to percolate down to wet the entire root mass. Best wishes with your new redwood trees!
