Beware the Emerald Ash Borer

Pennsylvania Ash TreeAsh trees are some of the most beautiful and hardy trees native to the area, but an invasive species of beetle is threatening to kill them all.

The emerald ash borer has a 99% kill rate. The bug is a native to Asia but arrived in the US in the late 1980’s, when it was first spotted in 2002 in Detroit. However, experts say that this beetle has been wreaking havoc on ash trees long before this insect made its first appearance.

The Beetles Have Made Their Way to the Area

Emerald Ash BorerThe beetles have been spotted in 37 states, and that includes almost every county in Pennsylvania, a state that is home to an estimated 306 million ash trees. About 37 million ash trees in Pennsylvania’s state forests have already died.

The beetle works its evil by burrowing underneath the ash tree’s bark. When the larva hatch, they eat their way to the other side of the bark, leaving holes in the bark and cutting off nutrition and growth to the tree.

Protect Your Ash Trees

Once a tree has succumbed to the ash borer, there is little hope in saving it, but Eastern Pennsylvania still has a chance to save its magnificent ashes.

Make sure you’re aware of what type of trees are growing in your yard. If you have an ash tree, now is the time to contact a professional to treat it with a special pesticide that will protect it against the ash borer.

Remove Your Tree After the Leaves Fall and Save

Now that things are cooling off, the leaves are beginning to fall. While most of us are thinking about closing up our yard for the winter, the colder months can be a good time to remove a tree. Since there is less material to clean up after the leaves fall, Mr. Tree is able to offer a lesser rater for winter tree jobs.

Taking Away the Entire Tree

Getting Ready to Remove a Stump

After you get a tree removed, there is one thing that is often forgotten–the stump. Stumps can be unattractive and pose a tripping hazard. Plus, if you had plans of adding a garden, porch, or other fixture to your yard after the tree was removed, the stump will make this difficult.

Removing a Tree in Middletown

Removing a Tree in Middletown PA

There are many reasons why a tree may need to be removed. Perhaps it’s getting leaves, sap, or needles all over the place. It could be blocking out sunlight, obstructing a view, or have roots that are doing damage to a driveway or other feature in your yard.

In some cases, it’s critical that you remove a tree as quickly as possible. If the tree is dead or threatening to fall, you need to act fast. A falling tree can cause property damage, and death or injury. Even if a tree falls on someone else’s yard or onto public property, if it originated on your property, it’s your responsibility.
