As we recently wrote in our post about Overcoming the Challenges of Tall Tree Spraying, it takes the right equipment to achieve the vertical height necessary for spraying into tall trees. Because of this, the typical sprayer can't be made to "just work" for the job. There are four key areas of the sprayer that need to be sized correctly to achieve vertical spray heights: tank size, pump & engine, spray hose ID, and the spray gun.
When it comes to selecting the spray gun, you need something capable of outputting the necessary pressure to ensure uniform coverage. There are many high quality professional spray guns designed specifically for spraying tall trees. These guns enable you to prevent or combat pests and disease without leaving the ground.
Tall Tree Spraying Basics
Your choice of chemical treatment will vary depending upon the issue you are addressing such as pest infestations or disease. Place the chemical treatment into the container of the high-pressure sprayer, following manufacturer directions.
Spray guns give you control and flexibility so you have a wide range of motion. Hold your spray gun in such a way that you can spray the tree at an angle and avoid spraying chemical on yourself. Don't forget your Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), whenever you use chemicals. It is also advisable to cover lower vegetation with plastic sheeting to protect it from any damage from the chemical treatment.
When you start the sprayer, you will be able to control the flow of the spray with your spray gun. Position the gun and adjust the speed so you can send a focused stream into the tree branches to coat leaves and branches with a fine mist of the chemical. As you spray the tree, walk around so that you can reach branches and leaves from all angles for proper coverage.
