The Emerald Ash Borer is a small green beetle that feeds on the leaves of ash trees. The big problem with these tiny critters it that their larvae burrow into the bark of ash trees and eat the inner bark, disrupting the tree’s vascular system — the network that transports water and nutrients to branches and leaves. If an infestation is left untreated, the tree’s canopy will essentially starve to death and the tree will be destroyed.
If an Emerald Ash Borer infestation is detected early enough, the affected tree can be saved through targeted treatment. If you are noticing a thinning canopy, bark cracks or small, D-shaped holes in the trunk of your ash tree — or if you live in a known high-threat area — it’s important to take action before it’s too late. Rest assured the certified specialists at TruGreen are equipped with the tools, training and techniques to detect the beetles’ presence at a very early stage, even when the tree appears healthy to the naked eye. If an infestation is detected, or if you’d prefer to take precautions and protect a healthy tree, one of our specialists will inject a controlled dose of treatment directly to the tree’s vascular system, ensuring targeted application while minimizing environmental impact.
The Emerald Ash Borer has been devastating ash trees in southern Ontario and parts of the United States since 2002. Not only is this invasive pest negatively affecting species diversity for the trees themselves and the animals that live in them, it’s also impacting people like you whose green spaces are being rapidly depleted. This destruction can harm property values, hurt stormwater mitigation efforts, increase energy demands and put a damper on the morale of local residents. Early detection is key to protecting ash trees and preventing their destruction. With the right treatment at the right time, you can protect your green space and help your ash tree survive.
