Emerald Ash Borer Beetle
It is recommended to treat your tree before infestation occurs or your tree starts showing symptoms. There are three ways to identify if your tree may already be infected by the Emerald Ash Borer Beetle: Excessive wood pecker activity, tree canopy decline, and epicormic sprouts which are dormant buds that exist under the bark of the tree. These are known to grow branches that are sometimes called “sucker branches”. We take pride in useing the most effective chemical, TREE-age, to provide Emerald Ash Borer Treatments.
