Help - Excess Copper

White Plains, NY(Zone 7a)

Help! I applied an oil-copper mix to my trees (apple, peach, tart cherry) about an hour and a half ago, and realized that I inadvertently mixed the copper using the tablespoon instead of the teaspoon that the mix rate called for. Is it possible to fix this by washing them now? Have I just damaged my crop for the season? Thanks in advance.

Excess copper will sometimes burn the leaves. If this has not occurred due to dormancy, you should be ok.
