Is this a new planting or an established tree?

Newly planted Red Maples needs one to two waterings per week to become established. 5 gallons total per week and an additional 5 gallons of water per inch of trunk diameter.
If it rains an inch, you do not need to water.
Watering is best with a soaker hose.
Dig down 6 inches, if it is moist. Your tree does not need water.

The amount you mention is likely too much for your tree, cut back and check the soil.
