Description: In some situations, injecting trees with fungicides is an effective treatment for the management of Dutch elm disease (DED). Several injection products are on the market, and various means of application are recommended. Each product and method has pros and cons. The "best" product depends on the individual tree? its current condition, the objectives of the treatment, and the resources available. The purpose of this article is to bring the options and documentation together into one package, so that you can make an informed decision on what you will recommend for injection.

Keywords: Fungicides, mortality
