Anti-desiccant sprays are applied to plants in December/January to prevent water and moisture loss during the cold, dry winter months.Per UMass: "Desiccation injury may occur when water is transpired or "lost" through plant tissue more quickly than it can be absorbed though the roots. This is caused by long dry periods of cold and thaw along with winter winds. Anti-desiccant sprays add a protective waxy coating to the leaves of broadleaf evergreens to help slow the process of transpiration."
A late-season second anti-desiccant treatment is applied to your broadleaf evergreens. This treatment seals the stomata with a wax coating on the underside of the leaves as a protectant allowing the plant to still function through respiration without any loss of moisture.
