Q.Watering of almond trees
In your article on almond trees it said: “When growing almond trees, it is helpful to know that the trees do not tolerate wet soil” but then you said that: “Drip irrigation should be initiated daily with the trees needing 2-3 inches of water.” Does it mean 2-3 inches per day, or week, or month? We have a good loam soil.

However, newly planted trees require daily watering until established. So, if it's already an established tree, you would simply water weekly in the absence of rain, whereas newly planted trees would need to be watered daily (here is more info on that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/watering-newly-planted-tree.htm
