How to Identify an Emerald Ash Borer
The emerald ash borer is a metallic green beetle that bores into ash trees feeding on tissues beneath the bark, ultimately killing the tree. It is not native to the United States and was first found in the U.S. near Detroit, Michigan in 2002.
A) The larvae live under the bark of the tree, feeding on the vascular cambium.
B) The larval-feeding leaves ‘galleria’ under the bark, interrupt nutrient flow to the canopy and eventually kill the tree.
C) The adult is a small, metallic green beetle only 10-15 mm in length. The adults typically emerge around June, leaving D-shaped exit holes in the bark. The adults feed briefly in the tree canopy before reproducing and laying eggs in the twigs and branches.
D) The larvae will start feeding in the branches at the top of the tree and work their way down. The first symptom in an infested tree is dieback in the tree canopy.
Symptoms of Emerald Ash Borers

Saving Your Trees Saves You Money!
The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) outbreak has homeowners wondering what to do with their trees. Do I remove and replace, treat, or ignore the problem altogether? If you remove the tree or ignore that problem, you end up with the same result…NO TREES! If you treat the problem; you end up with a healthy tree that will be on your property and increase your home’s value for years to come. Plus, the cost to remove and replace will typically be 5-10 times higher than the cost of one injection that is good for 2 years!
Why We Use the Arborjet Tree Injection Method?
For more than 15 years Arborjet has led the way in trunk injection technology by delivering the most effective formulas and cutting-edge equipment.

This service can be done around pools and patios and can also be completed while your kids and pets are playing in the yard!
