Can these tree ‘shots’ save urban park trees from deadly beetles and disease?

Dawn Fluharty, pest control adviser for Arborjet, demonstrates how using a tool called “Quikjet Air Unit” to inject pesticides into a tree trunk to treat a beetle called “Polyphagous shot hole borer” (PSHB) that is currently threatening California’s trees, at the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel in Pomona, CA., Tuesday, November 29, 2016. The Pomona Fairplex is one of three protection trial sites initiated by Arborjet, were trees are treated with three systematic trunk injection treatments, including TREE-age insecticide, and Propizol.

Thanks for this. Our trees are dying in our street and the city of San Diego is very slow to wake up to this. They have their head in the sand and keeping it there despite the alarm bells. I will forward this article to the city's arborist.

Sure will. I have started a dialogue directly with the subcontracting arborist, since the city is not budging.
