When to water my spruce?

How often should I water my 25 foot Norway spruce and white pine during this dry winter? We lost a matching spruce this summer due to ongoing drought. Since then, we've been more diligent to water the remaining trees. I watered throughout fall every couple of weeks using several soaker hoses to get water down to about 12 inches depth. I last watered at the end of November. Should I water? - Diane -
