There’s no question that mature trees are a valuable asset to any property. Trees provide shade, habitat for wildlife, screening, privacy and beauty. While many insects are harmless to trees, some insects like pine weevils can damage or even kill trees in any given growing season.
New this spring, our tree care crew will be using the Arbor Jet™ system to protect trees.
The Arbor Jet™ system is designed to deliver the needed product to defend against disease, harmful bacteria, and fungal infections while providing the necessary nutrients that trees need to promote health and longevity. The process starts by drilling small holes into the trunk of the tree. A quick jet device is inserted into each hole in the tree and the product is injected into the tree. The product is delivered through the tree’s vascular system and is transported from deep within the roots, to the tips of the leaves. When the quick jet is removed, the holes are sealed by a rubber plug and no insects or pathogens can enter. Some applications continue working in the tree for up to 2 years.
This process is most likely not for all trees in your property, but can protect those you value the most. This process is very effective, allowing for multiple applications in just one treatment. Arbor Jet™ is spray-free and waste-free since the product is delivered directly into the tree.
The MD tree care crew is proud to use this efficient and effective approach to protecting and improving the health of our trees.
