Question: 642-4411
My gramps would use lime and cement on trees for protection. Does it work? Frank, CT

Mort's Answer:
Lime keeps the crawling insects from ascending the trees in the spring. I would not use cement as an adhesive in the younger trees. Cement can be used in cavities in younger trees. You can use a high concentrate of hydrated lime with soap to make it stick. Stickers are available from garden shops.
