****TREE ALERT**** Invasive Emerald Ash Borer:

What is the Emerald ash borer? Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an invasive beetle that was discovered in southeastern Michigan near Detroit in the summer of 2002. The adult beetles nibble on ash foliage but only causes minor damage. The larvae (the immature stage) feed on the inner bark of Ash trees, disrupting the tree's ability to transport water and nutrients. EAB probably arrived in the United States on wood packing material carried in cargo ships or airplanes originating in its native Asia. EAB can be found in approximately 25 states around the country, including Maryland and Virginia. Since its discovery, the EAB has killed tens of millions of Ash trees and regulatory agencies such as the USDA have had to enforce quarantines and fines to prevent potentially infested ash trees, logs or hardwood firewood from moving out of areas where EAB occurs.

How can it be treated? Ash trees that have been deemed healthy by a Certified Arborist can be saved through proactive treatment, using both foliar/trunk and or root feeding/injection. For trees that have been heavily impacted (or are already dead), full removal is necessary as the structural integrity and safety has been compromised. Before EAB: Healthy Ash trees lined this street. After EAB: Every Ash tree lining this street is dead. Ash trees lining a street in Ohio before and after being wiped out by EAB.
