Are you sure that it was dutch elm disease that the tree was suffering from? Dutch Elm Disease usually results in massive wilt and subsequent death of the tree and is caused by a fungus that enters through insect wounds or from root grafts.It sounds like this remedy may work well to keep insects out, but does not seem likely to work for Dutch Elm Disease unless it is also acting as a systemic fungicide.
