Endotherapy is a phytosanitary treatment method for trees which stands out from other traditional aerial methods for which it is worth mentioning that it does not require spraying or atomising with chemical products which pollute our environment. It is therefore harmless to the health of local animals and birds. The system consists of injecting the phytosanitary or nutritional substance into the trunk and it is then distributed by the tree’s vascular system..
Once the tree’s problem has been ascertained, the product is applied. The application is performed through injections which are introduced into orifices bored into the trunk of the tree. The number of orifices depends on the perimeter of the trunk and the tree species. The injections have a safety valve which prevents the product from being dispersed in the environment and ensures the safety of the person injecting the trees. Endotherapy can be applied to any kind of tree to both rectify nutritional deficiencies or to control pests or diseases. The injected product moves with the flow of the sap inside the tree’s vascular tissues, ensuring that it is properly dispersed throughout the tree..
WE SHOULD STRESS THAT ENDOTHERAPY IS AN INDIVIDUALISED TREATMENT APPLIED INSIDE PLANTS, SO NO TOXIC PRODUCTS ARE DUMPED INTO THE ENVIRONMENT AS IN LEAF APPLICATIONS AND IT IS TOTALLY RESPECTFUL OF THE ENVIRONMENT..
The uses of endotherapy extend to any kind of tree, with application times that range from 30 seconds to 10 minutes depending on the porosity of the xylem of the angiosperms: annular or dispersed..
