ash borer from ash trees - Highland Tree Service

Do you have Ash Trees on your property? You might not for long unless you choose Highlander Tree Service to treat your trees!

What is the Emerald Ash Borer?

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) in an insect that feeds exclusively on the leaves and bark of your Ash Tree. It is expected to infest and kill 100 percent of Ash Trees in Eastern Pennsylvania. The EAB first starts eating and making a home for itself in your beautiful ash trees. It then lays eggs and mature larvae infests the xylem, similar to the arteries and veins of your trees. The larvae cuts off all the water and nutrients they need to stay alive and sturdy.

What happens if I don’t treat my Ash Trees?

It is not a question of IF your Ash Trees will be affected; It is a question of WHEN.  The Emerald Ash Borer infestation is on the rise and becoming very difficult to contain. Once they infest a tree, it takes about 2-4 years for the tree to die. When the trees are infected they become very dangerous to the landscape of your property and removal is difficult to do safely.

When Should I Get My Ash Tree Treated?

The best time to get your trees treated is between mid May and Mid June, although you can get them treated through the fall time. The possibility of more treatment is risked if you wait too long to treat your trees. If you think your tree has already been affected, treatment may still be an option.  Young larvae is easier to treat. Mature Larvae will kill your tree. The best thing to do is have a Highlander Tree Service Expert look at your Ash Trees to examine the extent of infestation.
