If you're not an arborist or you're new to the tree injection business, you can learn about trees here.
Arbor Day Foundation
Trees may be grouped into 3 basic anatomical types based on the structure of their vascular system.
Early wood: larger xylem cells resulting from better growing conditions early in the growing season
Late wood: smaller xylem cells produced latter in the growing season.
The Xylem is responsible for the transport of water and soluble mineral nutrients from the roots throughout the plant
In conifers, or non-porous trees, their xylems are exclusively made up tracheids; elongated cells that serve in the transport of water. It has a slower rate of transport compared to vessel elements due to its openings' smaller radius.
In hardwoods, the xylem is made up of both tracheids and vessels elements; vessel elements are only found in angiosperms (flowering trees.) Vessel elements allow a faster rate of transport due to a larger radius.

Arborjet Tree Injection & Tree Anatomy
When treating trees with Arborjet, you're injecting directly into the primary transport tissue of the tree, its xylem, assuring quick translocation of formulation throughout the tree. The Tree Injection Advantage
