By now you have heard about
Emerald Ash Borer (EAB).
At this point in time the question is not if, but when this destructive pest will spread to your Ash trees. EAB was first detected in Boulder in 2013 spreading to the Arvada area by 2019. Treating your trees now is the best preventative plan.
Here are some warning signs for EAB:
- Thinning of leaves and upper branches and twigs
- Serpentine tunnels produced by larvae under the bark
- D-shaped exit holes 1/8-inch wide
- New sprouts on the lower trunk or lower branches
- Vertical splits in the bark
- Increased woodpecker activity
EAB is fatal to all infested Ash trees unless the trees have been chemically treated. We want our clients to be aware that a trunk injection for larger trees (2-year residual) or a soil injection for smaller trees (1-year residual) can still be performed throughout the end of August.
