Hello everyone, I hope you can help me. We planted two young Blue Palo Verdes and two Western Redbuds in our newly landscaped backyard. All the trees get water through a drip system. For the first few days we watered the trees by puddling so they get water to the root. Was that the right thing to do? Only one Palo Verde looks quite vibrant. The other has really dry leaves. The two Redbuds have brownish leaves and also look dry. Please help. I don't know what to do. We live in California zone 9/10 for planting.

You have to be very careful with new plants and drip systems. People usually amend the soil for new trees. This is good if you don’t overwater. The roots have to dry out enough to absorb oxygen. Sometimes a drip system can be to efficient and will keep the soil soaked. This can be a real problem when it rains.

Thank you so much. It makes complete sense. I think I will have the drip system removed from where the trees are.
