Adjournment Motion was made by Protecting Ash Trees From An Invasive Pest (NAPS)--There's good news for homeowners who have ash trees on their prop- erty. There is a simple way to protect this valuable tree. In addition to creating a beautiful landscape, the ben- efit from a mature, healthy ash tree is about $217 a year in increased property value, air quality, cooling in sum- mer, reduced heating costs and more, according to the National Tree Benefit Calculator. A simple injection can pro- tect ash trees from EAB, a particularly invasive pest. However, they can be vul- nerable to what some con- sider the most devastating of all invasive insect tree pests of the last 20 years-- the emerald ash borer (EAB), a beetle native to Asia that was introduced to North America in 2002". EAB lar- vae live under the bark of the ash tree and feed on_the tree's transport tissue, starving the tree of nutrients. EAB has already destroyed tens of millions of trees. In fact, most trees with EAB die in a few short years afar the onset of symptoms. Fortunately, one particu- lar trunk injection treatment from Arborjet, administered by a professional applicator, will protect ash trees against EAB for up to two years, in many cases even if the trees are currently under attack. Professionally applied trunk injection treatments cost a fraction of what tree removal and replacement does, which can be as much "as $1,000 per tree. Homeowners can look for a number of signs to identify EAB in ash trees, including a thinning canopy (upper lay- ers of leaves), branches sprouting low on the trunk, bark that peels eadily with lines appearing underneath, small D-shaped holes in the bark, and increased wood- pecker damage.
