Alberta Spruce winter burn

Zone zone 3 barrhead Alberta | alkloeck added on May 28, 2015 | Answered

Will a product like Wilt Pruf keep my dwarf Alberta Spruce from winter burn? We live in Barrhead, Alberta, Canada and are having a lot of winter burn on our Alberta Spruce. Last winter I sheltered them with a burlap windbreak and it helped some but I was wondering if an anti-transpirant spray is the answer. One fellow told me that it won't allow the needles to breathe, therefore, harming the tree. Please let me know what to do. Thank you.
