We offer a growth regulator spray controlling Seed pods on LIQUIDAMBAR trees, and fruit on PURPLE LEAF PLUM, STRAWBERRY, and OLIVE trees. This is a one or two application that is done when the tree is in bloom.
*Due to the factors below, we cannot guarantee 100 % control, generally we can get 50-75% reduction:
There are many factors that influence the effectiveness of these applications, like:
- Growth rates of individual trees
- Flower bloom set
- The duration of flower bloom
Additionally, due to environmental conditions surrounding the tree(s), small sections of the tree may come into bloom before or after most of the tree is ready. With each of these applications we have a VERY small window of time to get the trees sprayed. The weather, specifically wind and/or rain, is a very critical factor on whether this service can be properly achieved.
*** CRITICAL CAUTION***
It is important that trees being treated for Non-Bear NOT to be under stress from drought, insects, disease, or other environmental stress conditions. Treating stressed trees may cause temporary injury to the tree such as defoliation, leaf yellowing, leaf scorching or sapping. While unlikely, extreme negative reactions such as branch tip die back, or death of the tree may occur.
