How safe is Image around oleanders , satsuma orange, lemon and other trees ?
In general, it’s best to apply Image only to the target plant. We highly recommend it for use on Nutsedge; treating trees is generally not done and in general is not ever needed. As our online video explains, there is no reason to treat a tree and spraying nutsedge underneath it won’t affect it so that can be done without risk of injury to the non target plant.
So to answer your question, Image can be used safely around any non target plant; it’s all about how safely you use it! Spray duing low to no breeze and the risk of spray drift will be eliminated therefore getting it where it can injure another plant won’t be possible. Apply it during a 20 mph wind and the spray drift would surely get all over everything close by and should therefore be avoided.
As for animals, reptiles and other creatures that might be around the risk of injury is minute to non existent when the Image is mixed and applied as explained in our WEED CONTROL ARTICLE. Just keep pets and children away from the area you are spraying till it dries and they’ll be fine. Wildlife and other local creatures will know to stay away and their usual place of refuge or nest site will surely protect them so there should be no impact to the local oleanders if the Image is used properly.
