Emerald Ash Borer

Emerald Ash Borer is attacking and killing Ash Trees.  The Emerald Ash Borer is a non-native pest that has been confirmed in Moorestown, Cinnaminson, Edgewater Park and Westampton.  Click here to learn more about the Emerald Ash Borer.  Trees are pretty easy to identify:  The bark has a Diamond pattern, the seeds when present look like oar shaped wings, the leaves are compound with one at the tip and anywhere from 5 to 11 leaflets and the branches are opposite rather than alternating.  These trees are 40 to 60 feet tall.  If your tree is more than 30% dead, you may want to remove and replace.

We need your help to create an inventory of Ash Trees that could be affected by providing your name and address below.  Here’s a map of trees identified so far.

If you’re not sure, add the address and we’ll stop by to take a look and confirm if the tree is an Ash. We are working with a Forester and we’re working up recommendations for residents that have trees on their property.
