Neem oil and trees? Shrubs? Flowers?

Can I spray neem oil on shrubs and trees of ANY KIND???
I have a customer that is having the japanese beetles eating her trees terribly. She wants me to do a bug application and instead of using the chemical Sevin, I wanted to try this organic way. I read a lot of articles on neem oil and how it works, but no one says anything about trees and shrubs.

Neem oil on trees, shrubs and flowers
by: Birgit

Sorry for this much too late response. I've been away overseas.
Yes, you can use neem oil on trees, shrubs and flowers. No, not on any kind.
Some plants can be sensitive and before you spray a whole tree it's a good idea to do a test application on just a small part of the foliage. This is also recommended for many popular flowers.

If you are spraying for a customer, and the customer expects the problem to be fixed immediately, then neem oil is not the best choice. Please see the page on how neem insecticide works and you'll see what I mean.
