Heat Stress

Did you know that high temperatures can cause significant damage to your trees’ health? Higher temperatures increase the loss of water through stomates in the leaves, thereby increasing the demands on the root system to take up water in order to cool themselves via transpiration. If your tree is showing signs of already experiencing heat stress, water deeply using drip irrigation. A soaker hose or garden hose on low flow works best. Make sure to water at the dripline, instead of right at the trunk, since root density is highest toward the edge of the canopy and the entire root system should receive the water it needs. >>more info>>
