A good rule of thumb is an inch a week, best if supplied slowly over one day, then none the other six days.  I 
love those single tree soaker rings, but they do tie up a hose.  Another way to look at it is: one 5 gallon pail of 
water once a week every week unless you have had torrential downpours on a waterlogged soil.  A favorite 
pomologist once told the (true) story of a nurseryman friend of his in Lousiana that got a reputation of selling 
trees that you could count on living.  He guaranteed every tree if they would dissolve a "magic growth pill" in 
a pail of water and give it to the tree each week.  He supplied a generous amount of magic pills with every 
tree sold.  Miraculously, almost every tree he sold lived and thrived.  He confided to my friend that the magic 
pill was generic aspirin- he just wanted people to supply water regularly.

Best of luck with your tree.
