Specifying soil volumes to meet the water needs of mature urban street trees and trees in containers






Journal of Arboriculture 17(6): 141-149

Specifying soil volumes to meet the water needs of mature urban street trees and trees in containers

Methods of assessing soil volume are evaluated, and an alternate method presented. The method incorporates whole-tree water-loss predictions based on data from US Weather Bureau evaporation plans. Using as an example a medium-sized tree (20-ft crown diameter, 35-ft tall) growing in New York State, the method is illustrated: a soil volume of 220 ftsuperscript 3 was calculated.
