Fruit growers have long seen a need to protect tree trunks from the scalding sun.
During the heat of the day, trunks can expand, and then contract overnight
in the cooler air sometimes splitting the bark and damaging the tree.
A solution to this is to paint the tree trunks white to reflect the sun.
Sounds easy enough, but organic farmers, in particular, have had a hard time finding the right product to use that will safely comply with the stringent regulations placed on them, and at the same time be durable, long lasting and not wear down when it rains.
Eco-Orchard Paint is a newly formulated, all natural milk paint coating.
