Emerald Ash Borer Damage
Due to a small Asian beetle known as the emerald ash borer (EAB), tens of millions of ash trees have been destroyed. This beetle is a major threat to all varieties of North American ash trees and could eradicate all ash trees in a given area within a decade if not treated. Fortunately, there are red flags your trees are infected with Emerald Ash Borer or EAB and treatments that can save your ash trees. With trunk injections and soil injections that are both scientifically proven and environmentally-friendly, the professionals of Tree Craft Tree Service can safeguard your trees in Mainline, PA and surrounding areas. Though the signs of an EAB infestation are clear, homeowners need to be vigilant and look for them. Able to choke the tree of its vital nutrients and water, EAB live and feed underneath the outer bark layer.
Signs of Emerald Ash Borers
Routinely evaluate your bark for most of the signs as well as the tallest branches and note any dying branches and bald spots from where leaves stopped growing. EAB infestation signs include:
– The topmost branches have a loss of leaves
– From woodpeckers, there is excessive “flecking”
In the outer bark, there are D-shaped holes
– The upper canopy has dead branches
