New technologies are always emerging, always making our lives easier. These advancements have arrived in the arena of arboriculture as well. New ropes, tools and techniques have made tree care much easier, efficient and safe over the last 20 years.
One of the more recent advancements involves treating tree pests with”Trunk Injections”. In the past, treating insect pests of large trees involved spraying them from the ground. As spraying large trees has become more difficult and controversial, new treatment methods have been investigated.
Trunk injections are one of the alternative treatment methods that has developed. Injecting mediciment directly into a tree’s trunk minimizes environmental exposure and the amount of material required. Regimental Tree Care uses Arborjet injection technology when a tree would benefit most from its treatment.
