are you not able to 'quote' a prior post or did you alter it to fit your needs? the correct one is below 10,000 gallons or so, should be sufficient. a column holding 10,000 gallons of water with a diameter of 4 feet would be how many feet tall? Cylindrical cylindrical would it be 10 feet, 20 feet, 30 feet, 40 feet... tall? must be you figured out that for 10,000 gallons of water a tree would need to be a few HUNDRED feet tall to contain that amount of water

10,000 gallons or so, should be sufficient. Cylindrical here is your formula Formula: 3.1417 x Rē x D = Cubic Feet **** Cubic ft x 7.47 = Gallons now tell us how tall the tree would be...

No, that's YOUR formula and it's meaningless tripe. Your failure to consider variables ignores entirely, critical considerations such as percolation rate, soil constituents, density and compactness, absorption, runoff, mean table level, temperature, evaporation, membranous interference, capillary forces and at least a dozen other contributing factors.
Of course, I already explained all this to you. But like every fact you ever come across, you either prefer to ignore them or simply can't understand them. The results are the same, either way.
Not to mention that the the original issue is one of how much water one would need to properly water a Maple Tree thats' roots (of a given diameter) are partially shielded from water uptake due to sidewalk located a given distance from the trunk. You failed then as well to understand the basic geometry and hydrodynamics required to accurately aid in determining THAT equation. It was NOT about how tall a tree needs to be to... oh, never mind. What's the point, Schultzie?
You, of all people should recognize the dangers of pulling the scabs off of your deep, unhealed forum battle wounds. Hell, you're absolutely covered in 'em.
Enjoy your crow.

Enjoy your crow. Now, that's what's known as having one's onions handed to em' and getting schooled in a single move.
Deftly done. Class dismissed.
