Does anyone here use this stuff on their trees?  If so, how effective is it?  I'm looking for something that does exactly what this product is claiming to do.  Protect and repel.

IV Organic 3-in-1 Plant Guard for trees and shrubs, (such as Fruit & Nut Trees, Ornamental Trees, Roses & Shrubs). Used by home gardeners and orchard growers to protect tree trunks and branches from sunburn (summer), sunscald (winter), repel insects and rodents. This product is organic, non-toxic & environmentally safer. FIRST DEFENSE: Apply IV Organic 3-in-1 Plant Guard to provide a shield against the sun's harmful rays that cause sunburn during the hottest summers day-- as well as sunscald which is caused when the temperature abruptly rises too high during the cold winter months. Both Sunburn and Sunscald cause the tree's bark to crack and/ or die-- resulting in additional stress which get compounded by insects and parasites that enter the barkless wood-- an invasion that will ultimately shorten the tree's life. SECOND DEFENSE: Apply IV Organic 3-in-1 Plant Guard to provide a shield against beetles, termites and other wood boring, chewing & piercing type insects. Organic & effective time release defense with 7 natural oils, including castor, cinnamon, clove, garlic, peppermint, rosemary & spearmint oils. THIRD DEFENSE: Apply IV Organic 3-in-1 Plant Guard to provide a shield that repels most rodents that may gnaw on the tree's bark. This product contains castor oil, which comes from the Castor Tree Seed, and naturally makes everything coated with this product taste horrible! You can also dilute 1-2 teaspoons of the prepared IV Organic 3-in-1 Plant Guard with a gallon of water to make a foliar sun screen spray to provide your entire plant with defense to the elements up to 1-2x per year--Ideal at time of transplanting.

Hi all,

I've been looking for a mature Manila Mango and Haas Avocado trees and was offered a 30 gallon Mango @ $750 and 24g Avocado @ $285.  Below are some photos.  Do you guys think it's worth it?

I appreciate your responses/feedback.

Thanks!
