How much water does a tree use?
Does anyone have information about how much water (gallons) a mature tree uses? I know it may vary depending upon a lot of factors including the species, the size of the tree, the air temperature, humidity, light levels, soil type, and wind movement over the leaves. However, I think I remember hearing a rough figure of how many gallons a large tree can absorb per day.
Please provide documentation (the source) if possible for the information you give. Thank you.
