Elm Savers

Alpine Shire Council

Elmsavers are recommended as the preferred tenderer based on price and experience whilst also taking into regards the current climatic conditions being faced in the Shire. The soil injection method is most effective when there is sufficient moisture in the soil, it also requires a substantial amount of water during application. In comparison, the trunk injection method can be undertaken throughout the year, even during drought and uses up to 50,000 litres less water. Elmsavers guarantee their treatment for three years. Council currently treats the elms every two years, therefore by undertaking the tree injection we will be able to extend our treatments and save approximately $50,000 over four years.
