Answer: Newly planted trees should be watered deeply once each week. The best way to water your tree is to make a watering well or watering basin beneath the tree by mounding up a few inches of soil in a circle all around the tree, about 12" away from the main trunk. Fill this basin with water, allow it to drain, then fill it a second time. Do this once each week. Watering in this way will concentrate the moisture over the root system and allow it to trickle down, wetting the entire root mass.
Best wishes with your new tree.
