Many homeowners are looking for ways to keep Emerald Ash Borer from destroying beautiful Ash trees. Several treatments are available but effectiveness varies from minimal protection to almost complete control. Additionally, some Ash may be too damaged to respond to treatment. Giroud Tree and Lawn answers the questions homeowners need to ask about Emerald Ash Borer control and whether or not it’s worth the money. “Emerald Ash Borer kill Ash trees so quickly that homeowners shouldn’t waste money on treatment unless the tree is still in good health,” advises Lou Giroud, president of Giroud Tree and Lawn and ISA Certified Arborist. “Giroud will not treat an Ash tree unless 70% of the crown is healthy. In cases where more than 30% of the crown has died, the odds of success are too low to justify treatment. As the tree continues to decline, it will rapidly become brittle and a safety hazard.” In a quest to find the best treatment options, researchers have exhaustively studied Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). “Insecticide Options for Protecting Ash Trees from Emerald Ash,” presents conclusions from over a decade of research by four universities. This research confirms that: “Emamectin benzoate consistently provides at least two years of EAB control with a single application, even in large and very large trees under intense pest pressure. It also provided a higher level of control than other products in side-by-side studies." Unsuspecting homeowners can be lured into using lower cost alternatives. It’s important to note that most treatment options must be applied every year. By contrast, Emamectin benzoate, (Tree-age) is only needed every two years. Besides cost, the biggest consideration is what is the best Emerald Ash Borer Control Treatment to protect the tree? “In good conscience, a company should not take money from homeowners for treatments that do not fully protect a tree from EAB," continues Lou Giroud. “While other treatments may reduce EAB populations by 30%-60%, the deadly pest can still be in the tree and continue to destroy it over time. Tree-age trunk injection is the only treatment that Giroud Tree and Lawn recommends to its customers.” Here are the questions a homeowner needs to ask before buying Emerald Ash Borer control treatment and the answers that the professional should provide: 1.    Have Emerald Ash Borer been found near the property? Treatment should be done once EAB has been confirmed within 15 miles of the property. 2.    Does the tree already have signs of EAB? Look for D shaped exit wounds and crown die back. 3.    Is the tree still healthy enough to absorb and transmit the treatment through the tree? To be eligible for treatment, Trent Dicks, Technical Manager for Arborjet which manufactures Tree-age, recommends an even higher health threshold: "The Ash should have at least 70% of the canopy intact to be able to save the tree." 4.    Which treatment option does the ISA Certified Arborist or tree service professional recommend and why? As noted, research has proven that Tree-age trunk injections provide the best control against Emerald Ash Borer and the treatment lasts for two years. 5.    Is the technician licensed by the state to perform the treatment? Licensed professionals know how to calculate the right dosage for the size of the tree and the proper set-up for the application. Bottom line, upfront research and asking the right questions can help homeowners make a good decision about whether or not to protect Ash trees from Emerald Ash Borer.

WOBURN, Mass., June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Gypsy Moth season is hitting New England hard this year, with the fuzzy black caterpillars blanketing trees, plants and even cars and patios across the region. In fact, 2017 is likely to be one of the region's most devastating seasons because of the recent drought. "The time is now to eliminate these pests and save your trees," advises Rob Gorden, Director of Urban Forestry for Arborjet, a Massachusetts-based company working to save trees across the country from invasive and destructive tree pests. Fortunately, Arborjet is now offering two environmentally responsible trunk injection treatments, TREE-äge® and TREE-äge G4, to control the Gypsy Moth population for up to two years. This effective method injects and seals the treatment directly into a tree's vascular system so it does not seep into the air or soil, ensuring the treatment reaches the Gypsy Moth pest as it feeds. At this stage of the season, treatment with broad spectrum insecticide ACE-jet will offer a quick solution for infested trees, while the TREE-äge products are long-term preventative options. Gypsy Moth larvae feed on several types of trees, and under high population pressure will feed on almost any tree or shrub, chewing through the leaves and in many cases completely defoliating trees. Their preferred species include oaks, maple, beech, birch, hawthorn, apple, poplar and willow. Mature larvae may even feed on hemlock, spruce and pine. In addition to severe defoliation damage, Gypsy Moth Caterpillar droppings cover patios, furniture and outdoor living areas, making for an unsightly, unsanitary mess. "Many trees in New England are under stress from the destruction wrought by these invasive tree pests and will valiantly try to put out a new set of leaves after being hit by Gypsy Moth Caterpillars," Gorden said. "This results in a second wave of uneven and underdeveloped leaf growth that exhausts the tree. Unfortunately, this can kill many already weakened trees if preventative action isn't taken. By treating your trees now, they will be protected for multiple seasons and can continue to thrive."

Emerald Ash Borers kill Ash trees in as little as 1-3 years. The signs of this fatal pest's destruction can be seen throughout the Philadelphia region. A video by Rob Nagy, ISA Certified Arborist at Giroud Tree and Lawn, shows a street in Northeast Philadelphia that is lined with Ash trees. While several are dead or showing signs of decline from Emerald Ash Borers, two Ash trees continue to thrive. "The contrast is startling," says Rob Nagy. "These Ash trees are growing side by side and Emerald Ash Borers are killing them all except for the two that have been protected with TreeAge trunk injection treatments." In a quest to find the best treatment options, researchers have exhaustively studied EAB. “Insecticide Options for Protecting Ash Trees from Emerald Ash,” presents conclusions from over a decade of research by four universities. This research confirms that: “Emamectin benzoate consistently provides at least two years of EAB control with a single application, even in large and very large trees under intense pest pressure.

Look for D shaped exit wounds and crown die back. 3.    Is the tree still healthy enough to absorb and transmit the treatment through the tree? More than half the tree’s crown must still be alive and in full leaf. 4.    Which treatment option does the professional recommend and why? As noted above and in a video by Arborjet, the manufacturer, Tree-age trunk injections provide the best control against Emerald Ash Borer and last for two years. 5.    Is the technician licensed by the state to perform the treatment?
