As luck would have it Evan Davis on the BBC (Radio 4) has just had an
article about HS2. Some protesters claiming that the trees HS2 had planted
in 2018 for screening had all died. Statement from HS2 said it wasn't a
good use of resources to try to water them, the drought meant it was never
going to be as cheap as planting new ones later.... Distasteful but logical
I suppose...

In a past life I used to try and nail this one down in contract documents,
so that we got plenty of water, and that fair remuneration was deployed.
But it is one element of a contract that is hard to have much control over,
because when you want your plants watering is exactly the same time as
everyone else, and as all the others have said, there are so many
variables. And unless you can stand there checking what a contractor has
put in, how are you realistically going to monitor it? And it also comes
down to whether you 'call-off' the watering visits as and when you think
they are needed (and pay accordingly)  or whether it is down to
contractor's discretion. There's all sorts of ways of doing it, and you'll
just have to feel your way as to what is best in your situation.

Subject: 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,

Ben
