Homeowners that have Ash trees must be vigilant about protecting them from the Emerald Ash Borer. This invasive beetle, originally native to East Asia, has been wreaking havoc on Ash trees in the United States since 2002. Confirmed in our local area back in 2012, the Emerald Ash Borer population has quickly taken over our area and is killing Ash trees within our communities. Upon emergence in late spring, the adult insects eggs on the outside of the trees bark, which quickly hatch and tunnel into the vascular tissue of the tree where they begin to feed. The best results, especially on larger Ash trees commonly found in our area, is through trunk injection which must be repeated every two years to maximize protection.
If you have Ash trees on your property it’s extremely important to start treatment before damage is done. Call us today to schedule a consultation to assess the overall health and condition of your Ash trees before it’s too late.
