Answer: Hi Jackie,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Yes you can use Yates Anti Rot on native trees, however, some can be sensitive to the spray so applying a small test patch first is key.

However, in your case, as the tree is being attacked by borers, the Anti Rot will not be effective in helping its recovery. It is best if you can contact your local arborist to take a look at the tree for you and they also have access to the appropriate product to treat the borers in the tree as well.

Kind regards
