Campaign period

The trimming period starts at the 15th of June and ends at the 31st of August.
This is because the availability of the active compound Baccatine is most optimal in the new young twigs during this period. Before or after this timeframe the concentration of the active ingredient Baccatine is too low to be used.


Lay a piece of canvas or vinyl on the ground underneath your hedge or tree before trimming. This way the trimmings can be collected without being contaminated by dirt, pebbles or older larger branches. It is very important to present the trimmings as ‘clean’ as possible to the collection point.


The trimmings may only contain one-year-old twigs with a maximum length of 30 cm.


Please donate the trimmings to your local collection point. Almost all cities in Holland are equipped with a public collection unit.
