Trunk & Soil Systemic Injections

Trunk injection of trees is a way to treat many different insect and disease problems, as well as nutrient deficiencies, in an efficient and environmentally friendly way. Direct trunk injection is an alternative way to deliver insecticides, fungicides, and nutrients into plants. Some trees are too large to spray, are in areas too close to houses, parks, water courses, or others are in environmentally sensitive areas where spraying is not a viable option. The root system could also be inaccessible for soil systemic treatments, making trunk injection the best or only option available in such cases.

Some of the common insect, disease, and nutrient problems that can be treated by trunk injection include, but may not be limited to:

  • Bronze Birch Borer on birch trees
  • Hemlock Woolly Adelgid
  • Asian Long Horned Beatle
  • Elm Bark Beetle and Elm Leaf Beetle on elm trees
  • Various types of borers and bark beetles on pines, spruce, firs, and cedars, aphids and plant bugs on many different types of trees
  • Locust Borer on black locust and its cultivars
  • Ash/Lilac borer on ash trees, anthracnose on sycamores
  • Dutch Elm Disease on American elms
  • Iron chlorosis on maples
  • Other micro nutrient deficiencies in many other types of trees
