Oct. 22, 2014 – Live demonstrations of ArborSystems Wedgle Direct-Inject Tree Treatment System will be demonstrated at the ArborSystems, Inc. of Omaha, Neb. exhibit during the GIE+EXPO October 22 – 24 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky. (Exhibit #6013) and TCI Expo November 13 – 15 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, Conn. (Exhibit #1029).
“Arborists, urban foresters and tree care professionals can try hands-on demonstrations of our advanced technology for tree treatment,” said Chip Doolittle, president of ArborSystems. “Applicators can increase the number of trees treated per day using our system.”
The Wedgle is a no-drill tree treatment system — an easy, fast and tree-friendly way to treat almost any tree in five minutes or less. It is the only tree trunk injection application method that does not require a drilled hole. Also there is no mixing in the field, waiting for uptake of chemicals, guarding during draining process, need for power, pumps or return trips by applicators.
ArborSystems chemicals are used with their Direct-Inject Tree Injection System as an injection into the flare or base of the tree to ensure even distribution through the tree’s vascular system. It places the chemical deep into the active areas where it can be easily absorbed. Chemicals are delivered fast and effectively at a known dose rate with virtually no environmental exposure associated with foliage spray, soil injection or drenching,
“Tree trunk injections are a tree-friendly way to treat trees and plants by tree, turf and ornamental specialists and are people friendly too,” said Doolittle. “Children and pets are not exposed to chemical spray or open chemical containers and there is no need to cover outdoor toys, play equipment, pools, furniture or vehicles.”
ArborSystems’ chemical product line for pests, diseases and tree health includes Pointer Insecticide that treats Emerald Ash Borer, Hemlock Wooly Adelgids, White Flies, aphids and beetles and Greyhound Insecticides which controls beetles, caterpillars, mites and nematodes (prevents Pine Wilt disease). Their systemic fungicide products include Shepherd Fungicide that treats Anthracnose, Diplodia Tip Blight, Dutch Elm disease, Crabapple disease, Oak Wilt disease and other conifer and leaf diseases and Whippet Fungicide that controls phytophthora spp. and Pythium diseases, Sudden Oak Death and Beech Decline. Their antibiotic line includes Terrier Antibiotic that treats Bacterial Leaf Scorch in Elm, Oak, Sycamore, Oleander and Sweet Gum trees; Fire Blight in Mountain Ash trees; Ash Yellows in Ash trees; and Phloem Necrosis in Elm trees (also called Elm Yellow) and Springer Antibiotic for seasonal suppression of lethal yellow disease in palms. Their plant growth regulator products consist of Mastiff which reduces tree growth up to 70% over three years including stem elongation and wood formation and Pinscher used on ornamental trees to reduce flowering and fruit/seeds production decreasing cleanup and turf maintenance problems without comprising tree health. Their micronutrients product line improves tree health, promotes leaf growth and relieves symptoms of iron chlorosis, manganese deficiency and drought and transplant stress.
“Pine and conifers can be treated for Diplodia Tip Blight, a fungus disease, through November, as long as the outside temperature is above 45 degrees,” said Doolittle. “ArborSystems has eight Quick-Connect Injection Tips for treating all types of trees including hardwoods, conifers and palms.”
ArborSystems provides a variety of tree injection systems and insecticides, fungicides, antibiotics, micronutrients and tree growth regulators designed to meet a broad range of tree care needs.
