Ash Trees and the Emerald Ash Borer

There have been several stories published in the newspapers about the future of Ash Trees.  The invasive Emerald Ash Borer has been documented in several Burlington County communities.  On streets where Ash are the primary tree, the impacts will be devastating.  The Green Team has posted resources for homeowners in the community on our website.  If the damage from Emerald Ash Borer exceeds 30%, it may be too late.  Removal and replacement may be the only option if the damage is too great.  Dead Ash Trees are difficult to take down because the trees shatter. If it’s not too late, a certified pesticide applicator can treat your trees.   We’ve posted a list of Tree Experts  that can evaluate the condition of your trees and treat with pesticides and if necessary they can remove.  We urge residents to act now, as once the Emerald Ash Borer is present in your tree it will likely be dead in three to five years.  If you’re not sure if your tree is an Ash Tree, contact the Green Team and we’ll stop by and check.
