Ash trees losing bark

Zone 06470 | Conrad12n added on March 1, 2017 | Answered

I have many ash trees, up to 60- 80 ft tall, and lowest branches are 40 ft above ground. I have 10-15 this sized losing their bark, maybe drought related here in CT. I have a 700 ft well with 1/2 gal/min refresh rate. Suggestions?

Ash Trees with bark shedding should most likely be inspected by a qualified Arborist.
The shedding could be due to lack of water or even sun scald; but the Emerald Ash Bore is also a very real issue with Ash Trees.

Your County Extension Office can help you with local tree concerns and also recommend someone to inspect your tree.
