Omaha, NE (PRWEB) July 29, 2008
ArborSystems has introduced its new no-drill Quick-Connect Direct-Inject QC Tree Treatment System, an easy, fast, and tree-friendly way to treat almost any tree in five minutes or less. This simple trunk-injection application process does not require drilling, and there is no waiting for chemical uptake or guarding of capsules.
"Direct-Inject QC system is the only trunk injection method that does not involve drilling holes in trees as part of the application process," said Chip Doolittle, president of ArborSystems in Omaha, NE. "It protects the tree's health and prevents long-term wounding. Drilled injection holes compartmentalize, permanently damaging a tree's ability to move nutrients. Repeated drilling can seriously harm a tree's health. With the Direct-Inject method, multiple and annual treatments can be made without injuring the tree."
ArborSystems introduced the original no-drill Wedgle Direct-Inject system in the mid 1990s and has made numerous improvements in developing the upgraded Direct-Inject QC system.
No pumps or power are needed with the Direct-Inject application method. Simply squeeze the handles on the Direct-Inject unit and chemical is injected directly into the inner, active layers of the tree's cambial zone where it can most efficiently be used by the tree. This means less chemical is required to achieve control. And unlike spraying or soil drenching, Direct-Inject is a closed system, so exposure concerns are eliminated.
The Direct-Inject unit is preset to deliver a precise 1 ml dose and can be adjusted to deliver a .5 ml dose. Direct-Inject Chemical Packs are available for most ArborSystems chemicals in 120 ml and 1000 ml chemical packs that snap on to the injector quickly. Up to 1,000 injections can be made non-stop when using ArborSystems new High-Volume Kit and 1000 ml Chemical Packs.
Specialized Quick-Connect Injection Tips are available for hardwoods, conifers, and palms. The Wedgle Tip is offered in two sizes for treating thick- and thin-barked hardwood trees. The Portle Tip is designed for conifers and delivers chemicals to numerous points in the tree's internal layers. The Palm Tip is designed to penetrate a palm's outer husk deep into the inner, active layers.
ArborSystems provides a variety of tree injection systems and chemicals designed to meet a broad range of tree care needs. The Direct-Inject chemicals include insecticides, fungicides, nutrients and tree growth regulators. ArborSystems' Pointer Insecticide, an imidacloprid formulation, has been cited for the successful control of Emerald Ash Borer in the Midwest since 2001. It is the only imidacloprid product labeled by the EPA for two-year control and has saved thousands of ash trees in the Midwest. For more information, visit http://www.ArborSystems.com .
