We like dogs!

Your breed might not be represented but all of our product names are dog related – Retriever, Pointer, Greyhound, Whippet, Shepherd, Pinscher, etc. We tried to be creative when developing names for our products but we like dogs! Yes, we could have had space-age style names or ones with the word tree in it but we went for friendly – just like our products. One question we are asked all the time is what will we name our next new product? And we want to let you know that it will not be poodle! For more information, click here.

FAQ – Can you treat Ash trees for Emerald Ash Borer all summer long?

Yes! All day long. All night long. All summer long. Unlike other treatment methods for two-year control of EAB that have to be done in the spring, ArborSystems Wedgle Direct-Inject Tree Injection System and Boxer Insecticide-Miticide (active ingredient Emamectin Benzoate) can be applied until six weeks before the first frost. Trunk injections using our no drilling method and advanced technology for tree treatment are effective anytime the tree is actively growing so the product is translocated with the sap. And you can even inject at night but you probably will need your truck headlights or a flashlight! For more information, click here.

FAQ – Should you use Wedgle or Portle tips to treat hardwoods?

The Wedgle Tip is used with self-sealing WedgeCheks which keeps the chemical in the tree when the tip is withdrawn. The Portle Tip has ports along the length of the tip which inject chemical at multiple locations. It is dependent on the tree’s translocation to move the chemical out of the injection area. Therefore, it is very useful for injecting difficult-to-to-treat hardwoods or when making large-volume injections (such as for Dutch Elm disease or Oak Wilt) or late season injections when most trees are harder to penetrate. For more information on the various tips available, click here.

FAQ – Simple solution for priming problems.

It’s a question we get quite frequently. Why won’t my injector prime? Easy answer – you can only prime the unit with the injection tip removed. Use the Garden Hose adapter to flush out your unit with a higher pressure. This will clean out any debris or crystallization that may have occurred in between uses. Once you have primed your unit, the next step is to attach an ArborSystems chemical pack to the injection unit and then attach an injection tip. So, remember to always prime the unit without an injection tip attached. For more information, instruction guides or how-to-videos, click here.
