Emerald Ash Borer
What you should know before treating your Ash tree.
• Does your tree look unhealthy?
• Are you looking for a one-time
treatment for your tree?
• Has a tree care company
guaranteed treatment will
save your tree? If you answered yes to any of these questions, treatment might not be a good option. Before paying for treatment consider these points: • Leading experts do not recommend treatment of visibly unhealthy ash. It is suspected that once a tree shows signs of EAB, it is too late for treatment to save it! Treatment should be considered as a PREVENTIVE measure only. • All of the available insecticide treatments (trunk injection, sprays and soil application) need to be repeated every year. Are you willing to sign on for an annual treatment regimen indefinitely? • Currently, no treatments have been proven effective against EAB. Be very wary of anyone that claims to have the "solution" or promises to cure or protect you tree. There are no guarantees that available treatment options will work even on perfectly healthy looking trees. Unfortunately, the best option at this time for dealing with an infested ash is to remove it and replace it with a different variety of tree. Get the facts about Emerald Ash Borer here!
