Tree Bandage

Wicktek’s Tree Bandage is a tree wound bandage that is nontoxic and environmentally friendly. Users apply the water-based solution by spraying or brushing to provide a “glassious” bandage that actually becomes part of the tree or bush. The bandage provides a barrier that helps the tree compartmentalize the wound or pruning cut. This provides a better environment for natural callus formation. It should be applied immediately after trimming or pruning, and can also be applied to old wounded surfaces. Brushes or sprayers are easily cleaned with soap and water.
