What we do
Growth Solutions was created by people who love trees and wanted a better way of keeping utility lines clear without damaging trees. Traditionally, lines have been cleared through frequent and aggressive pruning that often requires making cuts that harm trees’ health and shorten their lifespan. Pruning near power lines is also very dangerous work. Our tree growth regulators slow down tree growth, reducing the amount of pruning needed and improving tree health.
Since our founding in 1976, the Rainbow family of brands has been at the forefront of caring for urban ecosystems. Growth Solutions products continue this tradition by keeping trees out of power lines while preserving their health and longevity.
Tree pruning to clear utility lines is a top cause of power supply interruptions for communities. Our growth regulators reduce the need for frequent pruning.
Tree maintenance is a high-risk job, especially when it’s being done near power lines. Reduced pruning means reducing risk to tree workers.
We do big things
The article below presents the results of a large-scale pilot project conducted with one of our utility company partners. From this project, we learned that homeowners overwhelmingly prefer growth regulation over frequent and highly disruptive pruning visits to clear power lines in their yards. Read more.
