In this Powell River Peak article, Dan Sharp from Davey’s Victoria, British Columbia, office talks about proper watering practices for trees suffering from drought.

“Trees like a cycle of moisture and dryness,” said arborist Dan Sharp of the Davey Tree Expert Company — typically, they regulate the uptake of water and nutrients to ensure their own health.

But during extended dry periods, the movement of nutrients can slow and even stop. The tree can suffer and temperatures in its canopy can rise, causing the leaves to shrivel and brown and, in some cases, drop limbs.
