Maggie Mae –
This product works fast! We have several Maples in our yard, and after losing 6 Amurs because of iron deficiencies, we sought a solution before we lost the remaining 16. Our King Maples were also showing signs of distress. We had spend hundreds of dollars using chelated iron products but the trees were ill beyond what remedy that product could provide. We read all the information online we could find regarding using iron supplement implants, it all sounded very positive…but to be honest, we were scared to death of the drilling and implanting process; what if we did more harm to our poor trees? Well we need not have stressed because if you read and understand the directions, the process is simple. Our trees are all multi-trunked so treating each tree trunk was necessary. After the first one was treated, we exhaled the breath we were holding, high-fived each other…we became pros. We treated 3 Amur Maples and 3-40 foot King Maples and have seen NOTICEABLE results in just 1 week. We decided to wait and see for ourselves if the product did work as fast as the reviews we had read; we then went ahead to treat the remaining 16 trees. Well worth the cost, no need to hire a professional and far cheaper than using products that dilute in water. Bottom line, they work! So treat your trees and save them!
