After speaking to Cody Tree Services regarding spraying for the Tussock Moths, here is the information they provided
Spraying is done from the ground and from a bucket truck. The reach of the bucket truck is 65′ Vertically and 20′ horizontally. From the ground, they can spray 20′ in any direction. They are using bt as the agent to kill the larvae and spraying should be done 10 days after the larvae have hatched. All quotes already provided will be fulfilled in the spring once they have been contacted about the hatching.
We have had a few people provide us with the quotes they have been given by Cody Tree Services and they are listed below for your general information
Quote 1- Spray the Fir trees on the property for Tussock Moth close to the driveway (approx. 75′) and within the reach of the delivery system of the spray truck and close to the home site – $1,051.85 (includes GST and Fuel Surcharge)
Quote 2 – Spray the Fir trees on the property for Tussock Moth close to the driveway (approx. 550′) and within the reach of the delivery system of the spray truck and close to the home site.

We have contacted OMEI to see what their plans are regarding spraying their properties, and this is the reply we received.
We are considering the merits of spraying part of our lands. We expect to make a decision early in the New Year and we will let you know of our decision.
