I just planted a Red Maple. It is only about 5 ft tall (very skinny) how much should I water it. Also, I used a little root stimulator after I planted it, is it gonna cause too much trouble? Lastly, can I water it in later afternoon (after sun down?) We live in Pearland Texas (a suburb of Houston) right now, we have rain almost every 2 or 3 days. Any help is apprecaited.

Thanks

There's probably a guide somewhere on this site, but here's some info on watering that gets handed out a lot on another forum.. http://www.watersaver.org/pdfs/fall_watering_trees.pdf
After the those trees get established (6-10 mos), you probably don't need to water them if you are in east texas.
