Urban Tree Decline

Cambistat

Cambistat is a growth regulator that allows a tree to redirect its energy from canopy growth to fibrous root growth by 40 to 60%, which enables root system enhancement, improved drought tolerance, and higher tolerance to stress and disease. This product is especially beneficial for newly transplanted trees as well as those that have been damaged or are in decline.

Cambistat is also beneficial for tree preservation during or after construction; it also aids in the root development of newly transplanted trees. Leaves of treated trees tend to be greener and have a thicker surface area than those left untreated. Clients can expect three years of benefits from one treatment of Cambistat.
