Emerald Ash Borer
The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), native to Asia, was found attacking and killing ash trees in Michigan during 2002. Since its detection, EAB has killed millions of ash trees and has been found in several more states, including Wisconsin. They attack all Ash trees, with Mountain Ash being the only exception. The adult insect is bullet-shaped, metallic green, and smaller than a penny. They present from June to August. Emerald Ash Borer is easily spread through the movement of firewood, logs and nursery stock. If a tree has been affected, you will notice dieback of the upper and outer crown or sprouts on the trunk or at the base of the tree.

Here at Maple Leaf, we are protecting Ash trees by performing an Arbor Jet Treatment. The Arbor Jet Treatment uses an injection of an insecticide that has shown great results in the control of Emerald Ash Borer. This insecticide product is called Tree-Age. It is injected into the base of the tree which allows the tree to take up the product and spread it throughout the whole tree. There is no exposure of the product outside the tree.
