What is the Emerald Ash Borer? The emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), commonly referred to as “EAB”, is an invasive wood-boring beetle. More about EAB from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation

There are many treatment options to protect ash trees from the Emerald Ash Borer. We can determine whether the tree is a good candidate for treatment and the best course of care based on individual tree health, EAB population density, tree location, and effectiveness and cost of treatment. We are recommending that all ash treatment candidates be treated preventatively within a 10 mile radius of a DEC confirmed EAB infestation. In our observations, we have determined EAB infestations are more widespread than the DEC maps show. The heaviest infestations have coalesced along the NYS Thruway from Erie, PA, all the way to Syracuse, NY. Your ash trees should be examined for these killing diseases even if they are beyond the current EAB treatment zones.
