I would actually recommend wettable sulfur over that. It may work, but there is quite a bit of sodium that is present in borax, which may kill sensitive plants.

Wettable sulfur and peroxide will help an infection when you apply them to the soil, or spray the peroxide on the tree.

Keep in mind when using peroxide, you will want to dilute it to 1 part peroxide to 3 parts water.

I have trees to spray the volume I need would have to be in the gallons about 25 gallon sprayer. mixing that volume sometimes is not an exact science. one part to three on the peroxide would mean?
