    High helix drill bits for injections

    I've tried "regular" bits and things worked just as well as the high helix. The key is using sharp bits. It is easier to throw away a $1.50 bit when you think it is starting to get dull (OK...confession time: I haven't thrown them away. If you need a fist full of modestly sharp 3/8" bits if...

    Printers in the truck?

    So an HP Laser Jet M15W only draws 200 watts peak demand, so a modest inverter can take care of that. It is: 13.6" wide x 7.5" deep x 6.3" tall compared to the Canon which is 12.7" wide x 7.3" deep x 2.5" tall so the big number is 4" taller. Thinking this may be worth trying.

    Printers in the truck?

    Thanks for the input. That Canon was one I was looking at. Was planning to add the battery, but maybe just wiring an inverter is a better idea. Can get a pretty good inverter for less than half of the $100 battery...

    Printers in the truck?

    I've been doing that too. I despise doing the same thing twice...so if I'm writing the quote in Jobber, it is ready to print and I have a copy. Then when it is time to invoice, I click finish and print the invoice rather than writing it out on another note page. I have really nice completely...

    Printers in the truck?

    Laser printers are quite a bit bigger. Thermal look to be about 2.5-3x as tall as the printers I posted. There are some very small thermal printers that will print a full page, but require thermal paper...and are about 2x the cost. Not that this disqualifies either, just makes them less...

    Printers in the truck?

    Anybody keep a printer in your truck to print quotes and invoices on site? Can it freeze/thaw and still work? A few I found that are nice and small: https://www.amazon.com/Workforce-WF-110-...B07X6WFH4B https://www.amazon.com/Canon-TR150-Wirel...B085VMW9YD...

    DED Micro Injections

    It is my understanding that it is futile to start treatment once symptoms have appeared. I have Rainbow's macro infusion kit: https://www.treecarescience.com/equipment/115v-high-volume-pump-kit It works well, but certainly is slow. I think that is the case with any macro. Wish micro would...

    DED Micro Injections

    EPA doesn't evaluate efficacy before they approve a label, just environmental impact...so just because it is on there doesn't mean it has to work. I've heard mixed reviews, but mostly negative, about micro-injection for DED. It is my understanding to get the 3 year control, you need...

    Inchworm infestation

    Need better identification. Some can cause significant defoliation, most do not. This time of year? Or looking ahead to spring/summer?

    Deflowering agent for Pecan trees?

    Sounds reasonable to me. Usually we think of discolored leaves being a nutrient deficiency, but when it is something else causing that, nutrients cannot make up for the changes. Kinda like fertilizing after growth regulator herbicide drift won't correct that damage.

    Deflowering agent for Pecan trees?

    If you look at the Snipper label, it sounds to me like you'd have to go check the tree daily to make sure you get it treated at the right time. Also, I'm not going to knock on a client's door and say "hello, I'm here to deflower your....uhh....tree. Your tree, sir, that is why I'm here! Yes...

    Tree business software

    I shopped around quite a bit for the last couple of months and think I've settled on Jobber. @Reach gave me a referral code for a free month. Any Jobber user can do that for you (and get a free month as well...). I'll be happy to do the same for you ;) Others in my running: Gorilla...

    What are the black marks?

    Usually caused by high pH soils. Note, in maple it is more often manganese than iron that is deficient. That matters if you are going to inject them because the 2 can "compete" with each other. If it is manganese deficient and you inject iron, you could make the problem worse.

    What are the black marks?

    Some kind of bark penetration. Was it a yard tree? Do you know it was injected? I wouldn't expect them to go more than a few inches up if it was iron injection. If you want to know, just cut a few inches off of the butt. The ring shake in the middle makes the heart useless anyhow. But like...
