Emerald Ash Borer is Here.

Protect your trees from EAB

Save your Ash Trees or Give them up to the Bugs!

Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is killing millions of ash trees and places many trees in your neighborhood at risk.

The choice is clear – either treat your trees to save them, or expect them to be killed by the borer.

What is Emerald Ash Borer?

EAB is an invasive pest from Asia that threatens the ash tree population throughout the U.S. where it has already killed tens of millions of trees with no sign of slowing down. In Wisconsin alone, there are an estimated 834 million ash trees and 37 counties are already under quarantine to help stop the spread of EAB.

Emerald Ash Borer Tips

A cure for emerald ash borer exists. Research has shown nearly 100% survival with treatment. Treated trees will survive. Get to know the signs of EAB to better detect an infestation.

  • The first sign that you have an EAB infestation may be woodpecker damage. Look for peeling or flaking bark as it is a strong indication that EAB are present.
  • Look for D shaped emergence holes in the bark. The holes will be about 1/8 inch in diameter and are a sure sign that EAB has already infested the tree.
  • Other signs include branch die-back, thinning canopy, and sprouts growing from the tree base or trunk of the tree.
  • Look for emerald ash borer beetles present during the summer months.
  • If you suspect you have an infestation, call a tree care professional right away to discuss your options. Keep in mind that treatments are a more economical approach to EAB management than removal and replacement.
