What Are Trunk Injections?

Legacy Pest Control Arborjet Trunk InjectionTrunk injections are used by our Utah pest control team to effectively treat insects, fungi, and nutrient deficiencies in trees. The Arborjet method is quick, easy and long-lasting. Our pest control technicians will inject the tree with a mixture of pesticides, fungicides, and fertilizers to treat many diseases and deficiencies. There are many advantages of using the trunk injection method.

Quick and Easy: A Legacy Pest Control tree professional can quickly perform a 3 step trunk injection process; drill – inject – plug.

Safe: the solution is injected directly into the tree, eliminating exposure to people, pets, and the environment. This also means that Legacy Pest Control can perform a tree injection without concern of weather conditions or in active areas.

Long-Term Protection: Trunk injections work through the tree’s trunk, branches, and leaves to offer protection for up to 2-3 years.

Cost-Effective: Unlike spraying or soil treatments, tree trunk injections save you money by using a precise dose of the solution to your tree, versus requiring a whole area to be treated; and the spray can NOT be done during wet or windy conditions. Additionally, Tree Injections can save you from needing to pay hundreds of dollars in order to have a diseased tree and its roots, removed from your property.  Healthy trees contribute to energy savings, stormwater retention, and increase property value.

Eco-Friendly: The tree injection method seals the solution inside of the tree eliminating environmental exposure, and is completely safe to use near rivers or ponds, parks, playgrounds, golf courses, etc.

Trunk Injections for Fungal Diseases in Trees

Trunk Injections for Fungal Diseases in TreesTree fungi can weaken trees to the point where they can create a hazardous situation by heavy trunks falling and creating property damage or bodily harm. Fungus starts by entering the tree where a wound has occurred due to events such as landscapers pruning, lawn mower injuries, and trenching of utility lines. Fungus begins to show in the form of black or brown discolorations, and the enzymes in the fungus cause a weakening of wood fibers. This weakening can lead to falling limbs, small debris littering the ground, and in the case of rot, the whole tree may topple over.

Common Types of Tree Fungus Treated with Arborjet Injections Include:

Anthracnose: is a fungal infection usually seen in Sycamore Trees, Oak Trees, and Ash trees. Anthracnose affects tree leaves, and you will often see a noticeable color change. In some trees it causes a loss of leaves, creating a canopy-like effect, which litters the ground debris.

Dutch Elm Disease: is a fungus that kills many American Elm Trees each year. This fungus affects trees by plugging up the systems that deliver water and nutrients until the tree withers and die. First signs of infection will usually appear in the upper branches and progressively spread to the rest of the tree until the roots eventually die.
