It all depends on the surface area, capillary action, saturation, runoff, as well as absorption and percolation rates, doesn't it ? ? ? whistle

Next silly question...

False, analogy.

Depending on lack of ground moisture (This area was undergoing a severe drought), 10,000 gallons of water would be so rapidly sucked into the surrounding dry earth, as to provide virtually NO benefit to "large" trees. Especially, with large trees that have mostly surface roots (as most of our region's trees do).

Go easy, now... you're abusing your typical alottment of harebrained comments.
