How widespread are these reports?

The reports of problems appear to be primarily concentrated in a geographic band that includes Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Wisconsin. While most properties treated had successful weed control, we are committed to continuing to work with every customer who experienced problems related to Imprelis®.

We encourage anyone with indications of tree injury to contact their lawn care provider and to return to this website for updates. On September 6, 2011, DuPont began a process to fairly resolve claims for impact on trees that Imprelis® herbicide may have caused.
