The Emerald Ash Borer is Here

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), is an invasive beetle first detected in Michigan in 2002. It has since spread to 25 states, including Pennsylvania, and has been detected in Canada. It has killed tens of thousands of Ash trees and is considered the most destructive forest pest ever seen in North America. 

To stop the spread of EAB, the International Society of Arboriculture recommends the following: 

  • Do not move firewood and obey quarantines on wood transportation if applicable. 
  • Recognize the signs of infestation. Visit emeraldashborer.info to learn more.
  • Pre-treatment programs - contact us for an on-site consultation to learn how to protect your ash trees before they become infected.
