What can you do in addition to treating your trees?
-Do not prune your Pines or Firs between the months of April and October. Bark beetles are attracted to wounded trees.
-Help alleviate drought conditions with supplemental watering. Deep root watering, or a drip line with a soil amendment to help retain water are both extremely helpful.
-Remove dead or dying trees immediately! This includes stumps. Haul dead wood offsite, or solarize by covering and sealing the wood completely in clear plastic left in a sunny area.
Why should I inject my trees?
-Chemical injected stays inside the tree, no pollution!
-Minimal impact to soil, water and air.
-No exposure to the public and minimal exposure to the applicator.
-Ideal for treatments in public locations .
-Longest residual, no photo or micorobial degradation.
-Treatment affects only pests feeding on the tree.
-Wide treatment window for applicators, essentially year-round.
