Cincinnati Emerald Ash Borer Control


Millions of ash trees in Ohio have already lost their battle against the infestation of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). Will your ash tree be the next victim?

Don’t wait around until it’s too late and your tree is beyond hope.  Let a professional urban forester with more than 18 years of experience determine what to do about the serious risk facing your ash trees.

Tim Jacob, an Emerald Ash Borer control specialist, provides a no-cost consultation to assess the health of your ash trees.

Tim, who helped establish Cincinnati’s Forestry agency, has special training in eliminating the EAB and can explain the best procedure and treatment program that is available.

Loss of trees not only means you lose shade and beauty, but you may also face a large bill for tree removal costs if the tree dies. Also, trees can contribute significantly to the value of a home.

Because infestation of the Emerald Ash Borer almost certainly means that your tree will die unless it has treatment, don’t put off a decision about treatment.

The Emerald Ash Borer has been observed in Anderson Township since 2007, spreading to many neighboring communities. Already, tens of thousands of ash trees in the area have perished or will soon.

If your tree has not yet been attacked by the borer or is now hosting only a few of these beetles, it can probably be saved. Research by five Midwestern universities (Illinois, Minnesota, The Ohio State, Purdue and Wisconsin) found that lower trunk injections of the insecticide emamectin benzoate (TreeAge) provides unmatched and effective control of the Emerald Ash Borer.

Note: treatment of an ailing ash tree cannot restore portions damaged by the borers. The treatment is not a fertilizer. Discuss health options with Tim to learn what to do after your tree is treated.
