Christmas Trees

Christmas trees are subject to attack by a number of insects and mites. Some are mainly nuisance pests while others can kill trees or severely reduce tree quality. The type, frequency and severity of insect attacks normally varies with host, location and season. Virtually every Christmas tree planting will have some type of insect problem between establishment and harvest. Christmas trees are easily affected by fungus, especially needlecasts. Mist sprayers allow you to cover more square inches of surface area on trees. You can blow through, around and over trees AND get outstanding results.

Christmas tree growers have found the A1 Mist Sprayer to be more efficient than any other spraying method and it is also much less expensive. They have found that they can reduce fungicide application rates by 30-35% while retaining effectiveness. Growers have effectively treated for insects and diseases using as little as 5-6 gallons of spray per acre.
