Emerald Ash Borer Treatment

Emerald Ash Borer (or EAB) is an invasive species native to Asia. Despite its attractive lustrous color, it has the potential to essentially eradicate Ash trees in the US. It has recently been found in Maine and is expected to become a critical threat to our Ash trees.

EAB bores into the trunk of Ash trees and can quickly girdle and kill otherwise healthy trees in 3-5 years. There are quarantines in place to stop the spread, but unfortunately many trees will be susceptible. We can help save your beloved Ashes using our trunk injection system to deliver a systemic pesticide to protect your trees.
