Tree Growth Regulator

Choose Cambistat for Growth Reduction and Other Health Benefits

Cambistat is a soil applied plant growth regulator. Tree species differ in sensitivity to Cambistat, which allows for growth reduction varying from between 30% to 60% over a three-year period—and that’s just from one treatment. In addition, Cambistat also redirects some of the energy that would have gone into growth to help grow more fibrous roots and thicker leaves. These health benefits include disease and insect resistance as well as better drought tolerance. Ask us if Cambistat is appropriate for your landscape.
