The Wedgle Direct-Inject System is comprised of three primary components:
- The injection unit body that features two Quick-Connect (QC) couplers
- Chemical packs which snap on to the top QC coupler (A)
- Injection tips which snap on to the front QC coupler (B)
A variety of injection tip designs let you
treat more types of trees
Specialized Quick-Connect Injection Tips are designed to work with trees of various bark thickness and to place chemical precisely where each tree’s unique vascular structure can best use it. No drilling is required with any Quick-Connect Injection Tip.
Wedgle Injection Tip for Hardwoods
The original Wedgle Tip is the best choice for treating most hardwood trees. The wedge-shaped tip end deposits chemical where it can most easily be absorbed by the tree, in the cambial zone between the bark and outer ring of sapwood (the xylem). Choose from two lengths depending on bark thickness.
The Wedgle Tip is inserted while attached to the Wedgle Direct-Inject unit and is used with WedgeCheks (included with chemical purchase) which are small plugs that keep the chemical in the tree after the injection is made.
Portle Injection Tip for conifers and hard-to-treat
Portle Tips have multiple “ports,” ports, or openings, along the end of the tip which deliver chemical numerous points in the inner active layers of conifers, and allows you to inject more chemical at each injection site when desired. A check valve in the base of each tip keeps chemical in the tree until it is absorbed.
Portle Tips have also proven beneficial when injecting tough-barked hardwoods such as hackberry and hickory, thick-barked hardwoods such as elm and eucalyptus, or when the bark of any type tree becomes harder to penetrate when making late summer or fall injections. The short Portle Tip works well for injecting Sycamore and London Plane trees that can be difficult to inject with the Wedgle Tip.
The Tip Setter is used to set and remove Portle and Portle Palm Tips. The Tip Setter is used to drive these heavier injection tips deep into the active areas of conifers and palms, or through thick, tough outer bark of some hardwoods.
