Cambistat Tree Growth Management System
Xylem Trees was integral in the introduction of the Cambistat Tree Growth Management System (CTGMS) into Australia through a strategic partnership with US-based company, Rainbow Treecare Scientific Advancements. Cambistat™ is a product that has been scientifically formulated by Rainbow Treecare to deliver predictable tree growth regulation and improved drought tolerance on a wide range of tree species.
Xylem Trees and Rainbow Treecare Scientific together have developed a new company “Arbor Scientific” which is now commercialised throughout Australia.
