There are many states that are slowly falling victim to visits from the Emerald Ash Borer. In the order of the location to where my treatments have spread, the affected areas that I can take care of fall within this four state boundary:
If you have trees in these states and want to save them, be sure to start treating before its too late!
Michigan & Ohio
I have been treating for the Emerald Ash Borer in all of lower Michigan, south of Mt. Pleasant, and Ohio, around the Toledo/Bowling Green area over towards the Indiana border close to I-80 , since 2002. Thousands of trees are alive in these areas due to my efforts. If you live in any of these areas and have ash trees that still look good, get them treated before you lose them!
COLUMBUS, OHIO – TREATMENT IS NOW POSSIBLE! As the insect is clearly just north of Columbus, we need to start preventative treatments in this area ASAP! Delaware County is especially important! By working closely with an arborist in the area that matches my treatment method exactly, treatment in Columbus is now possible. Contact me now so I can put you in touch with the best!
CINCINNATI, DAYTON: As the insect begins to be reported in your area, don’t hesitate to start treatment. The sooner, the better! I also have two very good arborists I can refer in your area.
As I am now licensed in Indiana, I plan to treat much of the northern part of the state. All areas north of Indianapolis are on my list, as the city has had the Emerald Ash Borer for over eight years.
GARY, SOUTH BEND, FORT WAYNE: The insect is definitely in your areas. It is especially important that you treat your ash trees if you want to keep them alive.
The EAB has now been confirmed in 195 cities within Illinois. In 2006 when it was first discovered we were limited to finding the insect mostly around St Charles, Batavia, and Geneva. But the reality is that even in 2006, it was already in most of these 195 communities but undiscovered. Today it most likely is everywhere in the Chicagoland area and most of Southern Illinois. Very little of the state is outside a 15 mile radius of a known infestation. Take advantage of what we have learned in other states. DO NOT wait until it is too late to treat. There is no where in the Chicagoland area that I am not already treating. Once again this year, we have been awarded, and will be treating the parkway ash trees within the municipalities of Roselle, Downers Grove and West Chicago. Don’t hesitate to contact me so we can set up a treatment plan!
