    "They" sometimes say Alamo loses preventive efficacy after several treatments two years apart. (I'm in an oak wilt center.) "They" say to spend the propiconazole $ on replacement trees. But I can't replace three big live oaks in a motte. I've successfully treated them and others three times since nearby oaks died. What to do? (I can't trench; I'm in central Texas.)

    Who’s they?
    I would be injecting propiconazole on an every other year basis if I lived in an area of infection and owned high value trees. The chemical is cheap enough.
