Untreated / Treated

Much of the damage to trees and shrubs, notably evergreens goes on "behind the scenes".  One of the main dangers is from wind burning.  When moisture is not available(when the ground is frozen for example), leaves and stems continue to transpire, taking moisture from living cells.  What happens is desiccation or drying out, resulting in browning or actual killing of leaves and stems. Winter protection with Wilt Pruf can save the life of your shrub.
