OMAHA, Neb. (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
Live demonstrations of the Wedgle Direct-Inject Tree Treatment System that delivers chemicals directly inside the tree without drilling will be on display at the ArborSystems, Inc. of Omaha, Neb. exhibit (#961) during the International Society of Arboriculture International Conference and Trade Show, Aug. 11 – 15 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Ore. The ISA Trade Show is open 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Aug. 13 – 14.
“Arborists can try hands-on demonstrations and see how chemicals are delivered fast and effectively at a known dose rate with virtually no environmental exposure associated with foliage spray, soil injection or drenching,” said Chip Doolittle, president of ArborSystems. “Shepherd Fungicide applied with our Portle injection tip lets you place the chemical where the conifers and hard-to-treat hardwoods can easily absorb it treating Anthracnose, Diplodia Tip Blight, Dutch Elm disease, Crabapple disease, Oak Wilt disease and other conifer and leaf diseases.”
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. ArborSystems no-drill method is similar to getting a small scratch or vaccine that heals quickly versus drilling which is comparable to a cut that requires stitches and can be prone to infections. This approach protects trees from further stress and allows trees to put their full energy into recovery.
The Portle injection tip, used with the Wedgle, has multiple ports along the tip that effectively treats and enhances chemical delivery. A check valve at the tip hub’s rear keeps the chemical in the tree until it is absorbed providing successful trunk injection treatments. There are nine Quick-Connect Injection Tips available for treating hardwoods, conifers and palms.
“ArborSystems chemicals are injected into the flare or base of the tree to ensure even distribution through the tree’s vascular system so there is no need to spray the tree for insects, pests and diseases by tree, turf and ornamental specialists,” said Doolittle.
Shepherd is part of ArborSystems’ systemic fungicide product line used as an injection with their Direct-Inject Tree Injection System. Whippet Fungicide controls phytophthora spp. and Pythium diseases, Sudden Oak Death and Beech Decline. Their insecticide products include Greyhound that controls beetles, caterpillars, mites and nematodes (prevents Pine Wilt disease) and Pointer that treats Emerald Ash Borer, Hemlock Wooly Adelgids, Whiteflies, aphids and beetles. 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 cholorosis, manganese deficiency and drought and transplant stress.
ArborSystems provides a variety of tree injection systems and insecticides, fungicides, micronutrients and tree growth regulators designed to meet a broad range of tree care needs. They are known for their tree-friendly Pointer Insecticide that has been credited with saving thousands of Ash trees from Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) since 2002 as documented by Michigan State University. All of the Wedgle’s hardware components are made in the United States. For more information, visit http://www.ArborSystems.com
