What equipment to spray big trees with?

OK I never tried spraying trees before, but I've decided to try spraying with diluted milk, compost tea, and also Surround - not all at once :wink: Surround is supposed to be sprayed at petal-fall.

I have 3 plums trees that are NOT dwarf -- about 15~20ft tall and a neglected dwarf apple tree that is about 10ft tall. The rest are small enough that I can manage with pump sprayer with a 15" wand nozzle, but WHAT do I use for the big ones? Inexpensive but effective equipment would be ideal.

Thanks!

This is what you need. It's made by "ortho" and they sell it at Home Depot.

Thanks! Neither Home Depot nor Lowes around here had it on their giant shelves stocked with every kind and size tank sprayer you could imagine, but I spotted it right away on their normal people-sized shelves when I walked into a local hardware store. :D

Now if it would just stop raining, I'll be able to get out there and spray. (In the mean time, I'll be busy slug hunting! :wink:)
