Over the years I have seen all levels and degrees of pesticide injury to plants. 

Herbicides, when used properly, rarely cause problems on non-target plants. However, these products can cause injury when applied inappropriately, when they turn into a gas (a process called volatilization),
or when they are blown by the wind away from the targeted area (a process called drift).

Accurately diagnosing plants that show herbicide injury symptoms is often difficult since, in many cases, other causes may be involved or it may be uncertain what herbicides were applied.

Trained or experienced individuals may be able to tell if a specific herbicide injured a plant. These professionals often examine the plant symptoms and background
information (including the type of herbicides used, application rates and timing, injury patterns, and the plant species affected) to confirm or discount
the possibility of herbicide injury.

So what should you do!

1. Write down everything! Dates, times and what you see and experience.

2. Get help from a qualified person (Certified Arborist) www.treesaregood.org to determine what has actually happen and if the plants can recover and what precautions you should take.  The professional you choose should have extensive experience in pesticide identification and plant value determination.

When the site is inspected by the arborist he/she should take pictures (1) close up of plant and (1) overall, gps coordinates of each plant effected, additionally each plant should have a individual appraisal done on its own work sheet.

3. Find out the name of persons involved and the company whom is responsible for this pesticide application. When you speak to them tell them inform them of the damage and ask for a copies of the spray logs and labels of pesticides used. 

4. Contact the states you live in States Pesticide Regulatory agency and report the information you know and ask for a inspection.

5. Once you know to what the extent of the damage and if the plants will recover or not the arborist should provide a written report their findings from the site inspection. 

6. Once you have done this, you may want to work with the party who did the damage directly or work with a attorney who can help negotiation a resolution to this issue.
