FAQ- How does the EZ-Ject Herbicide Lance work?

EZ-Ject Herbicide Lance from our sister company is easy to use and effective way to control unwanted woody vegetation – trees, stumps or brush. A single compression stroke of the EZ-Ject lance head drives the shell through the bark and into the cambium layer of the tree. Once in the cambium, the tree’s sap dissolves the chemical which is taken up into the tree killing roots, trunk and foliage. Fully loaded, the EZ-Ject lance weighs less than 10 pounds. Gravity fed, spring-loaded head injects shells through bark with minimal operator effort. For more information, click here.

Before you buy a tree injection system, ask about maintenance.

And you need to ask as it is important to know what happens after you buy the system and are in the field. ArborSystems Wedgle Direct-Inject Tree Injection System maintenance kit is included with every purchase. It’s held in the carrying case so you have it with you at all times. You don’t need a lot – just O-rings and a replaceable check valve. And that means you can reduce your maintenance cost with fewer parts required. And when it takes less time to fix anything, you are back injecting trees very quickly. Want to see more? For more information on operating and maintaining the Wedgle, click here.
