Tree Nurseries

Rust fungus, needle blight and oak processionary moth outbreaks are common to nursery stock and Christmas trees, alongside many other infections and pests. Effective and efficient pest control with tree sprayers is, therefore, vital for healthy nursery operations. The high-performance turbines from VICAR offer a wide range of application options: from blanket coverage of tall trees and Christmas trees, to the pinpoint targeting of oak processionary moths and avenue trees, to 360-degree tree spraying. In order to ensure that the trees can withstand the high threat of infection, the pesticide must penetrate the leaves and needles properly, so the foliage and needles are fully and evenly covered. VICAR radial blowers are equal to this task thanks to the high air speed that they achieve with a lower volume of air compared to other types of blowers. The air, which serves to transport the pesticide, can thus be better directed and positioned to achieve an efficient, sparing application with minimum drift.
