Forward-thinking certified arborists and municipalities are using tree injec- tions to ensure that neighborhoods and urban forests are safely maintained. Research shows that trunk injections with TREE-├Ąge not only help save trees but are also far more cost-effective than removing and replacing mature trees. Visit Arborjet, Brookside Agra has developed a high-performance, nonchemical and all- natural product called RemediPro to degrade sludge buildup safely and im- prove water clarity in closed and slow-flow water systems, such as ponds and lagoons. Utilizing a proprietary, five-strain bacteria blend, RemediPro works naturally to reduce organic levels of scum, sludge, fats, oils and grease that can threaten good water quality and aquatic life in water retention and collection areas, lakes, ponds, animal manure pits, water gardens, fish farms and hatcheries. RemediPro creates no risk to the environment, animals, humans or aquatic life because its only byproducts are carbon dioxide and water. RemediPro is a dry bacterial blend available in conveniently packaged, cost-effective 8- and 16-ounce, water-soluble pouches that are simply tossed into the water for ease of dosing. A decrease in water clarity can reduce water quality and oxygen levels, preventing sunlight from penetrating the surface scum. This condition poses a threat to aquatic life in the water by increasing temperatures, disrupting photosynthesis and lowering dissolved oxygen, which is Single Phase Power Solutions, manufac- turer of high-horsepower, single-phase electric motors, introduces single-phase pump solutions that do not require a phase converter or variable frequency drive.
