Since discovery of the Emerald Ash Borer in Douglas County in June, our arborists have been busy treating and diagnosing trees. Here are a few questions that have come up that deserve some clarification.
Is there still time to treat my Ash Tree this year?
CM's A Cut Above is using the trunk injection method, utilizing a product called TREE-äge. This particular treatment is an every two-year application. It is labeled for application from April-October. There is still time to provide protection for your Ash Trees.
How long can you extend the life of my tree by treating my Ash Trees?
Although there are no guarantees, a healthy Ash Tree can be expected to survive another 15+ years when injecting with TREE-äge .
Do I need to treat my trees for the lifespan of the tree?
Yes. Under the current guidelines with the product we are using, it is necessary to treat on an every two year basis for the lifespan of the tree.
Should I treat for Emerald Ash Borer?
Before treating any Ash Tree consider the following:
- Maturity of Tree
- Effect on Property Value
- Effect on Energy Cost
- Sentimental Value
- Cost of Removal/Replacement
If my tree is infected, how quickly will I see the damage?
D-Shaped exit holes, thinning canopy, and epicormics sprouts are all symptoms of EAB. This process can take several years.
