Wayne Smith is the Founder of W.A.N.E. Tree Systems. He invented the original W.A.N.E. Unit in 1971 to treat a large, declining Live Oak tree in a commercial parking lot. That tree is alive today. Similar trees in the area that were not treated with the W.A.N.E. Tree Units suffered long slow declines until they expired. Hear Wayne describe the W.A.N.E unit in the video on this page.
