Properties, like people, make indelible first impressions. Just as a dazzling smile and friendly disposition can win over a stranger within the first 15 seconds of a conversation, a beautiful landscape can create an instant appreciation for one’s home or business. However, as you are likely already aware, attractive landscapes aren’t created overnight. In fact, it can take years for your trees and shrubs to mature to the point at which they frame the type look you’re hoping to achieve. That’s exactly why the health of the plants within your landscape should remain one of your top priorities.
Arguably, trees are the single most valuable part of any landscape. Trees give lawns dimension and personality – and they are ever growing and changing all throughout the year. Unfortunately, however, not everyone respects the lives of the trees on your property. There is one small but extremely dangerous intruder that can quickly attack and kill your precious trees – the emerald ash borer (EAB).
These iridescent green, bullet-shaped insects are smaller than a penny, but they can cause the same amount of damage as a hatchet-wielding lumberjack if you don’t stop them immediately. EAB threaten about 45 to 65 species of ash trees and, along with other pests, cause billions of dollars worth of damage each and every year. If EAB have begun to attack your landscape, it’s important to act fast before they cause even more destruction. Generally, you can choose to either remove and replace the affected tree – or you can hire a professional to treat the problem.
