TREE-age will take between 1-6 months to push the insecticide through the entire tree. This means the tree may not be fully protected for up to 6 months and this amount of time depends on the type of tree, the size of the tree, the health of the tree, the moisture in the soil, etc. The healthier the tree and the better the moisture in the soil, the faster the tree will push the product throughout the tree.
Organo-Lawn’s recommendation is to do preventative tree care treatments anytime that the tree has foliage as this is when the tree is still moving nutrients throughout the tree and it uptake the product properly. If the tree is already under attack from insects and needs treatment we cannot guarantee that the tree will be protected until 6 months from the application date, however, we suggest treating the tree as soon as possible. If the tree is healthy we we can get control within 1 month from the time of application.
