History shows that approximately four years after detection of Emerald Ash Borer, the Ash trees will enter what has been dubbed as the “death spiral.” The Emerald Ash Borer population and damage in Ash trees will substantially increase. A professional arborist can help to reduce the devastating effects on your trees by treating now. Treatments are especially critical for larger trees, as they are typically more valuable to your landscape, as well as being more expensive to take down, and in most cases irreplaceable.
