Answer: Daily watering is excessive, even for a newly transplanted pine. One deep soaking per week will keep your pine happy. When you keep the soil saturated, you drive out the oxygen and plant roots need oxygen as well as water. Slow your watering down; if you're watering daily, switch to every 3-4 days for a week or two, then provide one deep soaking once a week. The best way to water deeply is to make a watering well or basin beneath the tree and fill it with water, allow to drain, then fill it a second time. This concentrate the moisture directly over the roots and allows it to trickle down and wet the entire root mass. Best wishes with your pine!
