spray for new trees?

mrsg47(7)April 3, 2012

Will it be necessary to spray my new trees that arrive in two weeks? If so, with what? What is arriving are three plums, a combo pear and one new apple. Many thanks, Mrs. G

I have often thought of when planting a new tree then spraying it right away with like Bonide Fruit tree spray. I have not done it but it might be a good idea.
That guy that does all the orchard videos in the UK, dipped his scion wood in a bleach-water mixture before shipping.
