I have recently planted about 30 young trees on 1-1/2 acres of land. I have no idea how often and how much water to give them. Would you please give this old man some advice.

The general rule for newly planted trees (their first year) is to give them 10 gallons weekly per inch of trunk diameter at breast height. (DBH) Of course, severe heat or drying winds increase water needs. Sandy soils also increase water need. Water the same amount but twice weekly in sandy soil.
