is uniquely qualified to manage pest problems and has been at the forefront of pest management since the Gypsy moths outbreak in the early 1980's. We handled Forest Tent Caterpillar a few years back until it passed, but there is no out running Emerald Ash Borer
. The simple truth is that up to 25% of our northern woods are Ash and they will be dead in 10-15 years due to this pest. Sadly, only an insecticidal treatment is the only hope to keep our special ash alive!
Now is the time to save the Ash on your property, your golf course, your homeowner's group or your municipality. Taking down trees is expensive and so are treatments, but you can treat for 14-16 years for the cost of removal of an 18” Ash. The value of the shade, the cooling, the storm water control, and the seasonal beauty of your landscapes only adds to the decision to treat your trees.
