When properly administered, a growth regulator can be a healthy choice for any tree.
- Increase Drought Tolerance
- Enhance Root Production
- More Efficient Leaves
- Reduce Canopy Growth
- Aid with Construction Damage (pre or post)
- Lower Pruning Costs
- Keep Tree at a More Manageable Size
Greener, thicker leaves help trees reduce water loss and provide a thicker physical barrier to insect and disease damage, which allows treated trees to be more efficient energy producers.
How it works:
The hormone gibberellin is responsible for the vegetative growth, i.e. branches, through cell elongation in trees. Paclobutrazol is a chemical that is responsible for reducing production of the hormone gibberellin in plants. With reduced growth to branches, the tree is forced to use the extra energy elsewhere within itself. This leads to an increase in root production and healthier leaves.
