Sudden Oak Death Spraying Begins

The Hitmen (a Santa Rosa pest control company) has begun spraying some of our oak trees to help fight against Sudden Oak Death in the open space.  The chemicals being sprayed are Agri-Fos and Pentra-Bark.  The Agr-Fos is used to aid in the tree's own defense system and the Pentra-Bark helps the Agri-Fos penetrate into the tree.  The first area of spraying is behind Parker Hill Road, where most of Fountaingrove II's most magnificent oaks reside. Over 300 trees have been flagged for spraying in just this area.
