How Much Water Does a Tree Absorb in a Day?


The amount of water a tree absorbs in a day really depends on the age, type and size of the root. Large trees could need from 50 to 100 gallons of water per day. Smaller trees need less water.

Basically, the amount of water absorbed by a tree, particularly by its roots, is determined by its type, size, and age. In general, mature and larger trees need to absorb much amount of water, which ranges from 50 to 100 gallons per day. However, such trees eventually lose most of the absorbed water, especially during hot days, through the process called transpiration. More information can be found at
The amount of water a tree requires depends upon its length and width. A tree generally requires 1.5 to 3 gallons of water per inch diameter everyday. The amount of water required also depends upon the season.
