Regulating Tree Growth

Sometimes, frequent pruning is required to maintain tree size and prevent interference with structures and sidewalks. For trees that grow quickly, structural issues can also develop. In these cases, extra care is needed to maintain root-crown ratios and reduce the potential of trees toppling in windstorms. An alternative solution for these trees is growth regulators.

Tree growth regulators have been developed to slow the growth of woody plants. Applied to the soil immediately adjacent to the stem, the growth regulator is absorbed and translocated throughout the crown.  While the products don’t stop growth, they do slow growth significantly for a period of approximately two years. In addition, treated plants demand less water because of the growth regulation. Growth regulators can be applied throughout the year, and are an excellent way to manage fast growing trees.
