Urban Tree Specialists only recommends treating your ash tree for EAB if it’s valuable to you and/or your overall landscape and property value. (Distance from known infected trees should also be a key consideration.) There are several reasons why your tree may be of high value to you. Is it the only shade on the southwest side of your house? Is it the only tree in your front or back yard? Does it provide important privacy and screening? Did your son or daughter plant it for their school’s arbor day 25 years ago? These are just some of the reasons to treat your tree rather than remove it. You can discuss these options with Urban Tree Specialists to determine the tree’s importance to you.
