USGA Summary Points:Nine out of the ten tree species used less water than the turfgrass species, only L. indica used more water on a basal canopy area basis (cm). All of the trees revealed a 2 month lag offset in ET relative to ETref indicating that trees had higher water use rates during late summer/early fall compared to peak periods of high temperatures and environmental demand (June and July). ET of Trees and grass were correlated with ETref (trees R20.57-0.89, p<0.001, grasses R2 0.61-0.77, p<.001). Tree ET could be predicted based on the equation; ET(L)=12070.34-150.82*Trunk Diameter-84.64*Basal Canopy Area+37.09*Area of Sun Leaf, R2=0.58, p<0.001). Based on the results of our experiment, tradeoffs between turfgrass and trees would favor the replacement of turfgrass by trees. If an area 185 m2 were planted to low fertility bermudagrass and irrigated at ET only in the case of the L. indica water use would the number of trees equivalent to the grass water use actually fit into this area.
