Rainbow Ecoscience was created to support businesses like yours. Founded in 1976 as Rainbow Treecare, has been practicing plant healthcare (PHC) for over 40 years. In the 1990s, fed up with the lack of science-backed treatment protocols and distributors who seemed more interested in selling a product than solving a problem, Rainbow Scientific was born.
Combining world-class horticultural and arboricultural research with a ground-up understanding of the day-to-day operations of running a service company gives Rainbow unique insights within the Green Industry. We are here to help you understand the issues your client’s properties are facing and get you the tools you need to find the solution.

Creating Industry-Leading Innovations
- Novel equipment & formulations
- Applicator-centric design
- Rigorously field tested
Plant healthcare is unlike anything else in the Green Industry and requires specialized tools to perform the work properly. Since the early days of injecting trees in the 1970’s, Rainbow has been at the forefront of innovative equipment design specific to the needs of proper plant care.
We not only design the equipment that is best for the trees and plants, we also design the equipment that is the best for the applicator. We know that it is somebody’s job to use these tools each day, so we consider everything from ergonomics to how they ride in the truck to how they are cleaned at the end of the day. We field test our innovations in real-world environments so you know you have the performance you can count on.
