Yes. Trees need water in the heat and dryness of summer. Especially in these times of climate change, extremes can really hurt at tree.
Most trees prefer a deep watering. The water has to get way down into the soil to their deepest roots.
Most sprinkler systems send a very light stream of water for a short period of time. Don't rely on that to really get the job done.
Put a sprinkler or hose on the tree running a very light stream of water, but be sure to leave it for many hours so that the water sinks in. If you have hard soil, it may run off if the water sprays too hard or for too short of a time.
