Emerald ash borer (EAB) is a very serious problem that threatens all ash trees in the Midwest. As of 8/5/08 it has been found in Wisconsin and is extensive in northern Illinois. The million dollar question seems to be, "When should I start treatment if I want to protect an ash tree?"
One consistent fact is that whenever they have found EAB, they always say it has been there for 3 to 6 years. It is important to keep this in mind as you make your decisions.
Another important point to remember - you have time to deal with this!
Read the Fact Sheet on Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) for more information on the threat to ash trees in Wisconsin.
