Watering trees during the establishment phase

So recently I read a specification produced by a large and well-respected 
landscape architecture firm that recommended watering semi-mature trees with 
'5 litres of water as and when required'. I set them straight but it made me 
realise that there isn't much clear guidance out there.

I'm now putting together my own guide and have come up with the attached 
table. I would be interested to hear what others think about what I'm 
suggesting. Any comments would be welcome, on or off forum.

Also, I'd be very grateful if anyone was willing to share their irrigation 
specifications with me so that I can hopefully produce a practical guide.

Thanks in advance,
