Home and business owners who noticed possible Imprelis damage to trees, shrubs or other plants after having the herbicide applied to their lawn.
Imprelis problems can reportedly include the death of shrubs, ornamental plants, willows, poplars, conifers, Norway spruces, eastern white pines, evergreens, and other trees on properties treated with the herbicide.
Conditionally approved for sale in October by the Environmental Protection Agency, Imprelis is used for killing broadleaf weeds like dandelions and clovers and is sold to lawn care professionals only for use on lawns, golf courses, parks, sporting fields, schools and sod farms.
Imprelis, a herbicide marketed as being environmentally friendly, has reportedly been linked to the death of thousands of Norway spruces, eastern white pines, and other trees on lawns and golf courses across the country. Reports have surfaced that the herbicide, used to destroy broadleaf weeds like dandelions and clovers, may also be equally effective at killing trees.
If you noticed possible Imprelis damage, including the death of trees, plants or shrubs after your lawn was treated with this herbicide, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
Imprelis and Tree Damage
DuPont, the manufacturer of this herbicide, has admitted a possible connection between Imprelis and tree damage, including that which occurs on large spruces and pines. In a released statement, the company announced that it would be investigating complaints of Imprelis damage on trees, working in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agency. Additionally, the company stated that, based on an ongoing review, it had observed Imprelis tree injuries, mostly on white pines and Norway spruces.
Other trees which may be susceptible to an Imprelis tree injury include:
These trees may be particularly at risk for Imprelis side effects, as they have shallow root systems, which may be closer to the area where the product is applied.
DuPont Imprelis Lawsuits
Several DuPont Imprelis lawsuits have already been filed against the company for tree damage which plaintiffs allege was caused by the herbicide. According to one complaint, the company was negligent in testing its product or reckless in placing it onto the marketplace. Furthermore, Imprelis lawsuits also claim that the company failed to properly warn consumers of Imprelis herbicide problems which could develop should the chemical travel through the soil and reach root systems. If you noticed the death of evergreens, white pines or other trees on your property after using Imprelis, you may be able to participate in a similar legal action.
