Precipitation is critical to the growth and health of trees and forests. Both quantity and timing of precipitation is important. As an example, receiving a “normal” amount of rainfall in a given year may be of little value if it occurs in a few heavy storm events compared to a number of smaller rainfall events throughout the growing season. Likewise, extremes in precipitation amounts -- whether too little or too much -- can stress trees, weakening them and reducing their resistance to insects and diseases.
