Emerald Ash Borer Information

1.  Worried homeowners should first confirm they have an ash tree:

2.  Homeowners should check their ash trees for symptoms of EAB using the EAB diagnostic aid

3.  Homeowners should take their time to decide if they want to start having trees treated with insecticide next spring, later, or never.  Treating NOW is an option but not a good one.  We encourage people to wait till spring.
