    Green trees!

    By Diane on 04/19/2011

    We have used this product for 3 yrs now and have found that the very destructive Japanese Beetles are less likely to eat the leaves of the trees treated with this product in early spring. We have a number of flowering trees and willow varieties that were ravaged one year so we asked our garden center if there was a way to keep the beetles off the trees. This product was recommended. It works to our satisfaction. As our trees get bigger, it takes a little more product to do the job, but it was well worth the result. Green trees! With no leaf damage!

    Price conscious

    By Bob on 04/24/2014

    It's much less expensive than the Bayer product. I treat over 30 trees on my property each year. Last year was the first I used this instead of bayer. I did lose a white pine over this past winter, so I'll be keeping an eye on how it works this year. Other than the pine my ash, beech, birch, walnut, apple, cherry and maple all did fine

    So far So Good

    By Susan on 10/24/2020

    We used this to protect our long needle pines from a blight that is taking the area by storm. So far all treated trees are doing well.

    This works well!

    By Jennifer on 04/01/2022

    My southern trees had green all over the trunk. Within two weeks max, all of the black was gone! I’d give this product 5 stars if it worked for a full year. It works for about 6 months & the directions say to only apply 1x/year max. Otherwise, this product is all of 5 stars!

    Almost didn't get it through FedEx

    By Melanie on 10/01/2021

    I'm going to use this product very early next spring to drench a mature birch tree that was infested with tree borer beetles in 2019-2020 and perhaps earlier. Had the tree pruned back, the visibly diseased branches removed last month. The tree had a lot of new growth, so it was worth saving. Again, I can't vouch for the performance of the product until I've used it, but I can say that shipment was held up for almost two weeks at the FedEx depot in Portland, OR. I thought I might not get the spray because it is restricted in some states (but not in Oregon). I put out some tracking notices online and lo, they found it and sent it out in the next couple of days. From there, arrived OK. Seems like my deliveries on things have slowed down because they're being checked through at least twice or maybe the courier is short-handed. Kind of unsettling at times.
