Do you have an ash tree in your home or business’s yard that is looking a little sick? While there are a number of diseases and insects that could be at the source of your ash trees illness, the most prevalent insect to effect ash trees is emerald ash borers. Emerald ash borers, or EAB, have destroyed millions of ash trees in the United States. It wasn’t until 2014 that Texas ash trees started to become affected by EAB.

We are able to inspect your tree and see how much harm has been done to your tree.

Our Treatment Options for Emerald Ash Borer
The best solution for ash trees that have EAB present is with insecticides. At Fort Worth Arborist Co. our arborists are able to provide a couple of types of insecticide methods, which include bark spray, canopy spray, soil injection, and trunk injection. The most common and effective insecticide methods are soil and trunk injection. When the insecticides are injected, they travel through the trunk, branches, and canopy to prevent EAB infestation.
For trees that are already infected with emerald ash borer, insecticide might be able to help a little bit, but the damage that has already been done cannot be reversed. For the insecticide to work, the tree must be healthy enough to transport the insecticide through the tree. When trees are already ravaged by EAB, its harder for the trees to carry any insecticide to parts that have already been damaged. Again, infected trees can stop continual damage but cannot remove any previous damage that has already been done.
