One quart of paste when diluted will yield sufficient spray for six to eight trees or less if applied with a brush with consistency of thick paint. Strongly recommended after pruning to assist in healing wounds quickly. Improves vitality of ailing or damaged trees.

  • Use after fall leaf drop and up until spring sap flow to stimulate better root development.
  • Use after sap flow beings to stimulate healthy leafing out and fruit set.

How to use Biodynamic Tree Paste
To apply as a paste, use white-wash brush, or may be applied by hand (heavy duty rubber gloves recommended). Dilute with water (about 2-3 of water to 1 of paste) to appropriate consistency for brush application.

For use as a spray:

  • Dilute 1 cup tree paste in 1 gal of water.
  • Stir for 20 minutes.
  • Screen through 50-60 mesh screen for sprayer application.
  • Spray immediately after stirring as contents settle quickly.
  • For best result, remove loose bark from trunk and major limbs with wire brush or scraping tool.
  • Do not apply when rain is expected, as it may wash off.

i was amazed at how quickly i saw the trees respond to the tree paste application. i sprayed it on them and within just 10 minutes i saw sap beginning to come out of the damaged areas and begin repairing the damage. i will be applying this regularly until the trees are healed.
