Application Instructions: 

Before using, user must determine suitability of this product for its intended use.

  • Applicator must wear paint goggles, respirator and gloves. Mix Tree-Safe well.

  • Tree must be clean of loose branches and needles. Tree must be completely dry before applying Tree Safe. Apply Tree Safe with airless paint sprayer.

  • Make sure that every exposed area of the tree is heavily covered including top, bottom and sides of every branch.

  • Also, the entire tree trunk must be covered except for the bottom of trunk to allow for water absorption. Let tree dry and cure for 24 hours prior to applying 2nd coat. In addition, tree must be kept dry and out of the rain for the life of the paint.

  • Note : Christmas trees have performed well in exterior applications with an additional coat of FR-10 clear flame-retardant coating. However, exterior testing is not complete for this type of application. Allow tree to completely dry before adding any decorations. When tree is ready for placing into an approved stand, cut 1" off of bottom of tree trunk which will allow for maximum water absorption by tree.

  • Tree must be placed in an approved tree stand that holds sufficient water for tree absorption. Check water level on a daily basis or as needed to ensure water absorption by tree.

  • Do not add water or change chemical composition in any way.

  • Always make sure cap stays on container.
