ArborSystems debuts injectable antibiotics for trees

The US company, ArborSystems (Omaha, Nebraska), has introduced a ready-to-use systemic antibiotic for direct injection into ornamental trees, woody shrubs and palms.  The Wedgle Direct-Inject Tree Injection System is the only "no drill" tree trunk injection system, the company says. It has launched two oxytetracyline hydrochloride-based products for use with the system. Terrier Antibiotic treats: bacterial leaf scorch (Xyllela fastidiosa) in elms, oaks and sycamores, oleanders and sweet gum trees; fireblight (Erwinia amylovora) in mountain ash trees; ash yellows (Candidatus fraxinii) in ash trees; and elm yellows (C ulmi) in elms. Springer Antibiotic is for seasonal suppression of lethal yellow disease (C palmae) in palms. The system delivers "proven results with less chemicals compared to foliage spray or soil drenching", ArborSystems notes.
