TREE FRIrIDLY, no drill way, to prevent sweet gum trees from producing gumballs -Wedgie Direct, Inject Tree Injection System will help reduce the production of the nuisance suite gum balls that sweet gum trees" drop every year. The injections build up a residue in the tree. There is a brief window of opportunity to inject sweet gum trees and that is in August every year. After three years, the tree has an 80 to 90% chance of not producing any more gumballs, unless it is a drought year. The price of injections is based on the drcumfer- ence of the tree. A tree with a 4-foot circumference cost between $100 and $180 per tree. The dramer- ence of the tree is measured 6 inches up from the ground. The system is helpful in the prevention of other dis- eases, pests, and nutrient problems that happen to all types of ees. For more information on the injection system call Mount Ptfiaski City Hall 792-3222 or con- tact a member of the Mount Pulaski Tree Committee - Jim Fuhrer, Joe Lucas, Margaret Schrishulm, Pare Edenbush-Maus, Kelly Coppinger, or Scott Faith.
