EAB is still spreading but you can protect your favorite Ash trees and keep them alive and healthy.

ArborSystems celebrates Earth Day, April 22, and recognizes its tenth anniversary of successful Emerald Ash Borer treatments using the Wedgle Direct-Inject Tree Treatment System and Pointer insecticide.

“Earth Day is dedicated to the appreciation of earth’s environment and ties into our commitment to tree friendly products,” said Chip Doolittle, president of ArborSystems. “Just as arborists and tree care professionals are dedicated to keeping trees healthily and thriving, we designed the Wedgle to be a quick, no drill tree trunk injection unit with virtually no environmental exposure associated with spraying, soil injections or drenching.”

The Wedgle and Pointer insecticide have been credited with saving thousands of Ash trees from Emerald Ash Borer, both preventatively and curatively, since 2002 in arboretums, cities and homes. The survival and recovery of Ash trees is documented by Michigan State University.

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 by tree care professionals. Chemicals are effectively delivered directly inside the tree at a known dose rate. 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 applications require no power, drills, pumps, guarding, waiting for uptake, return trips or mixing.

“We have had 10 years of continuous successful treatments keeping ash trees alive, even Michigan, which is considered ground zero for the EAB fight,” said Doolittle. “EAB is still spreading but you can protect your favorite trees and keep them alive and healthy.”

ArborSystems provides a variety of tree injection systems and insecticides, fungicides, nutrients and tree growth regulators designed to meet a broad range of tree care needs. All of the Wedgle’s hardware components are made in the United States. For more information, visit http://www.ArborSystems.com.
