Millions of ash trees in Ohio have already lost their battle against the infestation of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). Will your ash tree be the next victim?
Don’t wait around until it’s too late and your tree is beyond hope. Let a professional urban forester with decades of experience determine what to do about the serious risk facing your ash trees.
Emerald Ash Borer Control and Treatment Specialist
Tim Jacob, an Emerald Ash Borer control specialist, provides a no-cost consultation to assess the health of your ash trees.
Tim, who helped establish Cincinnati’s Forestry agency, has special training and 6 years experience in eliminating the EAB and can explain the best procedure and treatment program available to you.
Loss of trees not only means you lose shade and beauty, but you may also face a large bill for tree removal costs if the tree dies. Also, trees can contribute significantly to the value of homes and property.
Because infestation of the Emerald Ash Borer almost certainly means that your tree will die unless it has treatment, don’t put off a decision about treatment.
The Emerald Ash Borer was observed in Anderson Township in 2007, spreading to many neighboring communities. Already, millions of ash trees in the area have perished or will soon.
If your tree has not yet been attacked by the borer or is now hosting only a few of these beetles, it can probably be saved. Research by four major universities (Colorado State, The Ohio State, Purdue, Michigan State) found that lower trunk injections of the insecticide emamectin benzoate (TreeAge) provides unmatched and effective control of the Emerald Ash Borer.
Note: treatment of an ailing ash tree cannot restore portions damaged by the borers. The treatment is not a fertilizer. Discuss health options with Tim to learn what to do after your tree is treated.
