Every type of ash tree has a large canopy and is deciduously-shaped. If you aren’t sure whether you have an ash tree or not, allow our team to help you distinguish it and if it’s infested with Emerald Ash Borer (EAB).
Interestingly enough, the EAB is not harmful when it’s eating the Ash tree’s leaves. It’s only until it lays its eggs in the tree that it can cause major destruction. Once its larvae enters the tree through the bark’s crevices, it then continues to feed on the inner tree tissue, which distorts the tree’s water and nutrient transportation processes.
The EAB has been known to cause this disease across 35 states in the U.S. To reduce the spread of EAB infection, orders have been made to remove the tree or prevent people from planting them.
