EAB in Minnesota.
Act now to save your trees.
Emerald ash borer (EAB) is a wood boring insect native to eastern Asia that feeds on tissues under the bark of ash trees. Because EAB is not native to this area, our ash trees do not have natural defenses for this insect and will die if not treated preventatively.
Early detection of an EAB infestation is difficult. Decline, branch dieback, trunk sprouts, small, 3-5 mm “D” shaped exit holes, and other symptoms usually show up the second or third year of the infestation.
By the time a tree shows signs of EAB infestation, it is too late to save it.
Preventative EAB treatment is can be 99% effective, as long as it is started early, when trees are still healthy.
Treatment options for EAB include soil and trunk injected applications. Shadywood Tree Experts is in a unique position to offer all possible options concerning EAB, preventative and therapeutic treatments, to removal as a last resort.
