Without treatment, Ash trees with Emerald Ash Borer die within 1-3 years.
New Hope, PA (PRWEB) July 18, 2016
Giroud Tree and Lawn recently donated Tree-age trunk injection treatment to help prevent Emerald Ash Borer from destroying a massive, 200 year old Ash tree that is an iconic part of the landscape at the Bucks County Audubon Society. A 100% fatal pest, Emerald Ash Borers are spreading quickly through the Philadelphia region. Treatment is the only way to protect valuable Ash trees.
“Without treatment, Ash trees infested with Emerald Ash Borer, decline quickly and usually die within 1-3 years depending on size,” says Drew Slousky, ISA Certified Arborist and Vice President of Giroud Tree and Lawn, a tree service company. “To help preserve this beautiful tree, Giroud injected Tree-age, which has been proven to provide the best control against Emerald Ash Borers.”
Considered the most destructive forest pest ever seen in North America according to EmeraldAshBorer.info, Emerald Ash Borer kill Ash Trees when the larvae tunnel beneath the bark, stop food and water movement and starve the tree to death.
Property owners living in the Philadelphia region need to take action to protect Ash trees that are a valuable part of the landscape. The following steps help to ensure Ash trees are properly evaluated and treated:
- Contact a professional tree service and have an ISA Certified Arborist inspect the property to identify high value Ash Trees and determine the best treatment.
- Check that the technicians doing the Emerald Ash Borer treatments are PA Licensed Applicators.
- Ensure the technician has special training in trunk injections including how to correctly calculate the right dosage for the size of the tree and proper set up of the injection system to provide full protection.
Early detection and treatment to control this deadly pest are keys to preserving Ash trees. To be successful, treatment must begin while the tree is still healthy enough to fully absorb the injection. Giroud Tree and Lawn has been protecting Ash trees with trunk injections since 2012 when Emerald Ash Borer was first discovered in the Philadelphia area.
