Basal bark applications of herbicide with new ultra-low pressure dispenser

Our new dispenser works great for doing basal bark applications of herbicide.

015-340x800Basal bark treatments involve the application of an ester herbicide in an oil carrier to the bark of a tree.  We actually dial the pressure in at 2 psi – i.e., very low!  This produces a narrow stream of herbicide that can be precisely applied even to very small stems such as the one shown below.  This reduces off-target harm and reduces herbicide waste.  We posted a YouTube video that goes into greater depth.
