Brandt enTREE


Published on

BRANDT enTREE is a breakthrough technology that makes fertilizing and controlling insects and disease in trees safer, easier, economical and effective.

BRANDT enTREE applications are ready to use and connect directly to the tree. It only takes a few minutes to apply and the unique disease/pest protection formulations last all season long.

  2. 2. WHAT IS BRANDT enTREE™? Revolutionary technology developed for advancedtree health care Technology developed and licensed through theUniversity of Cordoba (Spain) Low Pressure Tree Injection (LPTI) system ~ 14.5 PSI Pre-filled, ready to use bottles Requires only a drill, ¼”drill bit and hammer Allows trunk injection at any height (minimum 1.5feet below lowest tree branch) Simple application measurements: 1 bottle for every5 inches DBH Allows for concurrent rather than consecutive treetreatment Easy, convenient, effective and affordableenTREE
  4. 4. TREE VASCULAR SYSTEMPlant vascular system provides pathway for important nutrients and water to movefrom one part of plant body to another. Tree vascular tissue in the form of xylem andphloem comprise the vessels for transport.enTREE
  5. 5. PHLOEM Living tissue that carries organic nutrients (photosynthate ) such as sucrose, (sugar) toall parts of the plant where needed. Innermost layer of the bark (derived from the Greek word meaning "bark“). Concerned mainly with transport of soluble organic material made duringphotosynthesis. This is called translocation.enTREE
  6. 6. XYLEM Derived from Greek word ξύλον (xylon) meaning "wood"; the best-known xylemtissue is wood. Transports water and soluble mineral nutrients from the roots throughout the plant.Also used to replace water lost during transpiration and photosynthesis. Xylem sap consists mainly of water and inorganic ions, although it can contain anumber of organic chemicals as well.enTREE
  7. 7. TRANSPORT THROUGH THE XYLEMTwo phenomena cause xylem sap to flow:Transpirational pull: Capillary actionRoot pressure: Water pressurepotentialenTREE
  8. 8. WHY TREE INJECTIONS? Optimal for treating tree pests in hard to reach locations Easier to treat street trees surrounded by pavement and containerized trees More precise and accurate placement of pesticides and nutrients Less potential for environmental contamination (run-off, drift) Lower visible application profile and minimal potential for public exposure Longer lasting results from injection vs. spraying More efficient application (less product used by injection vs. spraying) Safer for applicators: less climbing and less exposure to chemicalsenTREE
  9. 9. OPTIMUM TREE INJECTION TREATMENT Ideal season to apply : Spring Ideal environmental conditions : well hydrated soil with low humidity Ideal soil temperature : > 45 degree F Ideal ambient (air) temperature : 40 to 90 degrees F Ideal climatic conditions: sunny with slight breeze Ideal time of day to apply: early morning Ideal uptake : healthy , non-stressed treesenTREE
  10. 10. WHY USE BRANDT enTREE™? NO costly machines or equipment needed NO high pressure, forced delivery NO product wastage NO direct contact with product solutions by applicators NO complicated mixing of products required Easy to calculate usageenTREE
  11. 11. WHY IS BRANDT enTREE™ EFFECTIVE? Homogeneous distribution - dosage is the same at each injection point andabsorption rate corresponds to vascular flow speed. Full and Efficient delivery – absorbed by tree’s natural vascular system and productreaches a greater percentage of living tissue though out the tree. Higher volume at lower concentration – non-damaging to plant tissues and allows forquick natural absorption using low pressure injection (current high pressure injectionmethods of low volume at high concentrations risk tree injury and tissue damage).enTREE
  12. 12. HOW DOES BRANDT enTREE™ WORK? Treats trees from inside, gently dispersing nutrients and insect/disease formulationsinto tree’s vascular system. Pressure in bottle is ~14.5 psi (1.75 kPA) which is considered optimal pressure forovercoming potential negative tree pressure. One bottle (250 ml) will treat a 5 inch tree trunk diameter (DBH). Treatment time is dependent on rate of tree transpiration due to physiological andenvironmental conditions (i.e. drought, waterlogging, etc.). Type of tree will alsoimpact absorption rate. Most injection applications are complete within 10 minutesto 1 day.enTREE
  13. 13. WHAT EQUIPMENT IS NECESSARY WITH enTREE ™? Electric drill with ¼ inch fast spiral drill bit Rubber mallet Plastic connectors (included with bottles) Pre-filled, ready to use 250 ml bottleswith select tree protection products andnutrientsenTREE

PLANT HEALTH Observation: right tree in the right place Abiotic Factors: waterlogged soil, compaction, shade , sun, wind, nutrients, soil pH,etc. Biotic Factors: diseases (bacteria, fungus, virus), insects, nematodes, etc. Integrated Pest Management: use all methods available; no one solution solves allproblemsSolution Tool KitenTREE
