The Ash tree-killing insect is in Omaha!

If you live in Omaha, it’s no secret that the ash tree-killing insect, the emerald ash borer, has been detected.  Multiple sources of expert advice can be found, but Build The Big O will list a few steps that should be taken to ensure that your emerald ash borer treatment(http://edentreepros.com/emerald-ash-borer-confirmed-douglas-county/) is successful.

  1. Call a certified arborist (http://edentreepros.com) to give you an opinion
  2. Decide if the tree is worth keeping – experts are recommending that newer, smaller trees be removed as well as older ones.  Remember that you will have to treat this tree for the rest of its life.
  3. If you decide on treatment, make sure the company you use is reputable.  Check the BBB.
  4. Schedule treatment at the right time of year – some treatments are more effective at different times of the year.

If you take these steps, the result will be a healthy tree for years to come.  Only use a certified arborist and chemical applicator.  The chemicals that they have access to are much more effective than ones you can purchase at the big box stores.
