Ash Trees Infected With EAB


Treelover added on July 20, 2016 | Answered

I have several trees that have been treated for the EAB and a few that need to be taken down. The treated trees have not had dead wood removal in about seven years and they are littering my yard with broken branches each time we have a wind storm. Can I have the dead limbs removed from the healthy, treated trees without attracting more EAB? Thanks!

If your healthy trees have dead or damaged branches it is wise to have them inspected for Emerald Ash Bore.

You nearest County Extension Office may help you with this or refer you to a certified Arborist to check on the health of your trees.

Here are some links to help you including a link to find your nearest extension office.

The trees have been treated within the last year and are doing well. The root of the question (no pun intended) is: Will cutting off dead limbs attract more Emerald Ash Borers because of the new cuts? I don't want to attract more to jeopardize the other neighborhood trees.
