Emerald Ash Borer also known by the acronym EAB, is a green or jewel colored beetle native to North-Eastern Asia that feeds on ash species. These beetles chew on ash leaves, and lay eggs in the bark of ash trees. The larvae feeds on tissues that are below the bark. This halts the trees natural process of transporting water and important nutrients. If untreated, this infestation will kill the tree. Preventative treatments can be done that are good for two growing season before re-treatment is needed.
This infestation was first discovered in Minnesota in 2009, and since has killed many of the states population of ash trees. Minnesota is home to one of the largest ash tree populations in the entire country.
Signs of EAB:
Japanese Beetles skeletonize leaves by feeding on tissue between the major veins creating a lace-like appearance. Damaged leaves trim brown and may fall off. They feed on a number of hosts including Birch, Linden and Crabapple. Infestation and feeding damage can be controlled with usually 2 spray applications starting in early July.
Deep root fertilization is the best method to keep your trees healthy when living outside their natural habitats. Through this process nutrients are being delivered directly to the roots for an immediate boost of health. It is a high pressure injection process that reaches the deepest roots. This method is such an important plant healthcare process to maintaining healthy trees. This service is often used when there is reduced foliage, yellowing or light green leaves, or thinning or dying tips of branches.
