WHAT ARE TREE INJECTIONS INJECTION?
By injecting treatment directly into the transportation tissue of your tree’s trunk, we can target insects and diseases and prevent them from coming back.
WHY IS TRUNK INJECTION SUPERIOR TO OTHER METHODS?
A tailored approach
When it comes to your own health, you wouldn’t accept the same medication for every condition; the same should be true with your trees. When facing different challenges, they need different treatments, and sprays often use a one-size-fits-all approach that doesn’t address the root cause of your trees’ problems. With trunk injections, we create a specific treatment plan that treats and prevents the issues your trees are facing without the harmful effects of spraying.
A healthier method for your family and the environment
While more traditional methods for treating trees, like spraying, leave chemicals in the air and soil, injections are targeted at the root of the problem. We can use less product and what we do use isn’t released into the air. This is better for your family, our employees and the environment.
WHAT’S THE BEST TIME OF YEAR FOR TRUNK INJECTIONS?
Trees currently in bloom cannot be injected until after blooming season is over because treatments will harm pollinating insects. Otherwise, all treatments can be done all year long and are good for 2 years.
SOME COMMON DISEASES THAT CAN BE TREATED WITH TRUNK INJECTIONS:
- Emerald ash borer
- Bronze birch borer
- Dogwood borer
- Elm leafminer
- Bark beetle
