Fighting Emerald Ash Borers

Here in Fuquay Varina and surrounding areas a number of our clients have ash trees. Within the last few years, the Emerald Ash Borer (abbreviated "EAB"), an invasive insect from Asia, has moved into North Carolina and begun wreaking havoc on the state's ash trees. (https://www.ncforestservice.gov/forest_health/pdf/EAB_NCPesticidePub.pdf)


Once Emerald Ash Borers have begun attacking an ash tree, it's usually only a matter of time before the tree dies, as the EAB larvae disrupt the flow of nutrients in the tree's cambium layer. For clients who have ash trees in their landscape and would like to protect them, treatment needs to be done BEFORE the ash tree is attacked.


Snell Tree Experts offers treatment options of ash trees to help protect them from the Emerald Ash Borer. Call our office at (919) 557-3507 or email us at Office@SnellTreeExperts.com to request a site visit and quote from our ISA Certified Arborist (Tim Snell, #SO-2907A).
