Emerald Ash Borer

by admin_edje | Published March 4, 2019

The emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) is an emerald green beetle native to Asia. The emerald ash borer (also referred to as EAB) is an invasive species and is highly destructive to ash trees. emerald ash borer was first discovered in America in June 2002 in Michigan. It was accidentally brought to the North America in ash wood used in shipping materials.

Due to an overwhelming number of calls regarding emerald ash borer treatments, we may not be able to visit your property in as timely a fashion as we’d like in order to look at your tree. We can quickly provide you with a proposal for treatment of your ash tree with cost to be determined based on our measurement at the time of treatment.
