Applying anti-desiccant applications to your trees, shrubs and sensitive plants in the fall will help prevent the damaging effects of winter kill and salt spray injury. Winter kill is often the result of foliar moisture loss during the winter months. Evergreens and sensitive plants are good candidates for anti-desiccant protection. Excessive salt causes widespread damage to trees, which could lead to permanent decline and death. Salt spray deposits itself on the stems, buds and shoots of trees. This causes disfigured foliage, stunted growth and severe decline in tree health. Anti-desiccant is a protective coating that we can apply to help reduce these injuries.
