Time is of the Essence for Emerald Ash Borer Treatment
It is very important to identify an infected ash tree and hire a professional tree servicer in a timely manner. Ash Trees are known for having very brittle wood which is compounded by an emerald ash borer infestation. Brittle wood can cause a tree to fall, and a fallen tree can disrupt power lines or damage your house or your neighbor’s house, potentially causing injury or leaving you liable for thousands in damage. This becomes particularly important if your ash tree is located along a yard or a street, it will likely pose a hazard to your family, your neighbors, or others, as it dies.
