Emerald Ash Borer

Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has already destroyed more than 100 million ash trees and experts say it will ultimately threaten every ash tree in North America.

As our customers in Chicagoland, Wisconsin and Minneapolis know all too well, the keys to managing EAB include understanding your options and being proactive. Now that EAB is just starting to be detected in many areas on the East Coast, SavATree is committed to providing education and sharing lessons learned. In seminars and webinars, we will explain best practices so that whether you have one ash tree on your property or dozens of them, you will be able to make informed decisions that will benefit your trees and your budget.

Do you have ash trees? Is EAB in your neighborhood?

The very first step is to determine whether you have any ash trees, what condition they are in, and whether they can and should be treated. A SavATree arborist will visit your property at no charge to answer these questions and explain treatment options, if advisable. For larger properties, a tree inventory showing the location of ash trees is recommended. If you are interested to learn where EAB has been detected and how the cost of treatment compares with the cost of takedown, visit savatree. com/eab. There you can also view and register for upcoming EAB seminars or webinars and request a position paper on EAB planning and management.
