Our ISA Certified Arborists Can Help Protect Your Property From One of the Nation’s Biggest Forest Pests
If you live in Louisville, Colorado, you should know about one of the most significant forest pests in the history of North America. Emerald ash borer, a metallic green beetle, has killed hundreds of millions of ash trees in the U.S. since it was first detected in 2002. An emerald ash borer infestation was confirmed on the University of Colorado campus in September 2013. This location is within five miles of the City of Louisville, and most experts recommend treatment within that distance. It’s most likely your city is already part of this growing infestation, and your ash trees need to be protected from this risk. At Blue River Forestry & Tree Care, our ISA Certified Arborists have the skills to protect your ash trees and your property from this pest.
Symptoms of Emerald Ash Borer Infestation
The best way to curb this infestation is to spot any symptoms early. Treatment started too late isn’t as effective, so examine your trees to see if they show any of the following signs:
- Thinning of upper branches and twigs
- Loss of leaves
- New sprouts on the lower trunk or branches.
- Vertical splits in the bark that expose inner wood
At Blue River Forestry & Tree Care, our arborists are fully equipped with the knowledge and experience to correctly identify an infestation in your ash tree and come up with a complete, straightforward emerald ash borer treatment plan for the immediate care and long-term management of the affected trees.
