Ash trees are dying.

As we drive around our area we keep coming across dead and dying ash trees. The dead trees are the result of the emerald ash borer (EAB). These insects only showed up here about two years ago. It’s amazing how fast they move in and wipe out the ash trees. Our own neighborhood is going down quickly, except for the ones we’ve treated.
