Norfolk Island Hibiscus (Lagunaria patersonii) is a hibiscus tree endemic to Norfolk Island. It is widely planted throughout Australia; it is favoured by councils for its amenity value and minimal maintenance requirements. But there is a considerable downside when it comes to its seed pods and the dispersal of irritating fibres. Residents liken the allergic reaction to these fibres as pure hell. All is not lost as there may be a promising solution in controlling the trees seed pod production.
The University of the Sunshine Coast trials Elmsavers Novel 2 Fungicide on Quambalaria Shoot Tip Blight (Quambalaria Pitereka) and Myrtle Rust (Austropuccinia Psidii). Both Eucalyptus and Corymbia species were trialled. Delivery methods were wet spray and direct bark application. Encouraging results point to further research and product registration with the APVMA. Elmsavers Novel 2 fungicide has the advantage of multi seasonal control as seen in other field trials with other species. The delivery can either be direct tree injection or bark application. Bark application is an extremely fast and efficient way of delivering chemistry, the active ingredients quickly penetrates the periderm.
Fruit Tree Borer Maroga Melanostigma is a native lepidopteran insect (moth) that attacks and

Clients often call us only after the disease becomes evident in late Spring. We recommend that clients undertake treatment now during the dormant Winter phase. This allows ample time for the chemistry to translocate evenly throughout the tree. By the time Spring arrives your tree will be protected. Late treatments will still arrest the disease as seen in the recovery sequences below.

There has been an increase in Elm Leaf Spot infestation and infection treatment failures. Recent rains and high humidity levels are causing this wind borne disease to spread rapidly. Areas hit particularly hard are Coastal regions of Eastern Australia.
The best time of the year to monitor your trees health and advise accordingly. Inspect for insecticidal resistance, very serious and pending, developing in certain areas. Treating on cue to minimise the risk and keep chemistry levels high. More even chemical dispersal throughout the canopy particularly in dry conditions.
Elm leaf beetles inflict their worst damage during the larval stages of their life cycle. If left to their own devices, these beetles will mature and render a tree leafless. It’s possible for beetles to leave a tree completely defoliated in a week if the problem is not addressed.
Phytophthora species affects a wide range of ornamental plants, in many cases tree injection it not possible and other treatments methods are required.
A large elm with a trunk diameter of 100cm requires 56 grams of active constituent when soil injected at the label rate for elm leaf beetle. FACT.
Elm Leaf Spot is a fungal disease that is now becoming widespread and is a continual problem that will reoccur every year. Symptoms of Elm Leaf Spot are now evident on many elms.
