Shortstop 2SC (22.3% Paclobutrazol) suppresses vegatative growth of both trees and shrubs. Shrub applications may be applied as a soil drench or foliar spray.

Not only does Shortstop 2SC regulate plant growth, but it also helps plants produce thicker, waxier leaves, increases fibrous roots, and improve overall appearance. With these secondary effects, we are observing trees with less leaf scorch due to drought, less damage after construction, and an increase in disease suppression.

Save on Labor with Shortstop 2SC for Municipalities and Campuses

  • One product for both trees and shrubs means less space used on a shelf or truck & less labels to manage
  • 25-75% above ground growth regulation (depending on plant species) reduces time spent shearing & shaping
  • Less debris generated decreases disposal labor and fees
  • Thicker, waxier leaves increases drought resistance & disease suppression 
  • Improved fibrous root growth supports tree health after construction damage  

Proven Results

Arborjet performs extensive field trial work across the U.S. Numerous trials have shown a reduction in pruning frequency and improvement of overall appearance.
