Peter Wild, Arborist
With spraying and soil drenching becoming more and more controversial, Wild and his team recognized the need to update and rewrite the standard for trunk injection to improve the efficiency of product delivery, reduce tree wounding and improve the accuracy of dosage. Wild has consulted with royalty and officials in the United Arab Emirates on the date-palm weevil problem in the Middle East, as well as with leading experts on infestations in the United States involving the emerald ash borer, Asian longhorned beetle, hemlock woolly adelgid and mountain pine-bark beetle.
