Treat conifers in the fall so they are ready for spring.

You can still direct-inject pines and conifers through November with ArborSystems products as long as the outside temperature is above 45 degrees. Why? Treatments can be made anytime during the growing season and that includes fall for conifers and pines. And fall treatments provide a carryover to the following year giving a minimum of 12-month preventative and curative protection. And one of the direct-injection benefits…avoid chemical drift into unwanted areas which comes from spraying tall pines. And remember, ArborSystems has a complete line of tree injection systems, insecticides, fungicides, antibiotics, micronutrients and tree growth regulators designed to meet a broad range of tree care needs.

Friendly reminder – Clean your Wedgle before it is put away for the season.

Always clean your Wedgle Injection unit at the end of your work season to keep it from clogging or corroding for next year’s use. After removing your chemical pack, make your last injections for the day as there is approximately 2.5 ml of chemical retained in the injection unit. Submerge your unit in a bucket of water until the top QC coupler is underwater and squeeze the handles five to ten times. Then remove the injection tip from the unit and replace the dust plugs on both QC couplers. Or for more information on water flushing with the garden hose adapter, click here.

Treat trees in late summer to prevent leaf disease next Spring.

A few more weeks remain to provide protection for leaf disease next Spring by treating trees in late summer. Leaf diseases such as Anthracnose, Diplodia Tip Blight, Dutch Elm disease, Crabapple Leaf disease, Oak Wilt disease and Powdery Mildew can be treated with ArborSystems Shepherd fungicide. The fungicide needs to be in the leaf before it emerges and is infected. By treating the tree in late summer, the chemical can still move up into the tree. When the tree shuts down for winter and leaves drop, there is still fungicide in the buds so leaves are protected next spring. And a single application provides season-long suppression. For more information, click here.
