Emerald Ash Borer
The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive insect that is decimating the population of Ash trees in America.
The Ash Borer was first noticed in the U.S. in 2012 in Detroit, and since then it has spread, now wreaking havoc in our community.
The Emerald Ash Borer has been identified in recent tree removals we have performed in Lynchburg here at Branching Out Tree Care Expert, as well the locals of Bedford, Franklin, Campbell, Penhook, and Smith Mtn Lake.
Pictures we have taken shows how the Emerald Ash Borer insect wreaks it havoc once the insect lays its larvae, tunnelling just under the bark, effectively cutting off essential nutrients that feed through the interior layers of the tree. See photos
Trees that have been or that are under attack by the Emerald Ash Borer are in a much more weakened state making them canidates for only seasoned tree care workers. In other words, if someone unknowingly attempts to take down an affected tree there is a high likliehood of acvident happening. If the person does not have knowledge of the Emerald Ash Borer they should not be approached for working on the tree.
We at Branching Out Tree Care Experts remain vigilant in our plight to help the Lynchburg community deal with this biological happening. If you have Ash trees on your property please do t hesitate to give us a call. We have several plans that may suit your specific needs including special cost reductions for affected trees.
