Emerald Ash Borer in Wisconsin

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.

A Certified or Board Certified Master Arborist can give you advice before you take removal, planting or treatment action. Contact Wachtel's experienced staff for help dealing with the emerald ash borer threat to your ash trees.
