    I can't figure anything else that it could be. I was careful spraying the turf area 4 weeks ago and this happened over two days last week.
    Any suggestions? What do I tell the client? Full service account.
    Before anyone says anything, I went around and around with the computer to flip it over and got no cooperation, I guess par for the course today!

    i have seen some curling on a few white pines, nothing else though. not sure what it is of yet. no spruce of any kind showing any damage at all.

    I would have left the bottom of the pics out...classic how not to plant a tree.

    Unless Dupont is going to bend over backwards for no reason, they will deny this claim based on this pic alone. The majority of the roots are right under the mulch and NOT in the ground...is imprellis labeled for spraying mulch and root balls? I would have a hard time believing that you did not spray the root ball.

    I would like to see pics of Imprellis sprayed properly..as in not under or near the dripline (like common sense has ALWAYS dictated)...and then see if there was damage...lol

    Our Norway look the same and No the root ball was not sprayed. It is taken up by the drip line.
