The Emerald Ash Borer & Tree Removal in MA

Native to Russia and Asia, the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is a beetle that has made its way to the New England region causing significant damage to the Ash tree population. Attacking and burrowing in Ash trees, the Emerald Ash Borer significantly damage and eventually kill off a high amount of Ash tree containing forests. Here are some signs that trees may be infested with this beetle, and when tree removalĀ is necessary.

Where Does It’s Name Come From?

The Emerald Ash Borer gets its name from its dark, metallic green color. It also has a purple-colored abdomen underneath its wings, and averages at around half an inch long. The larva of this beetle, which burrow paths and tunnels between the bark and the wood of the Ash tree are creamy white in color, legless, and contain bell-shaped body segments. Most adult EABs can fly about half a mile from where they hatch, but most infestations occur from the transportation of infested ash wood such as firewood, logs, or nursery trees into an uninfested area.

What Trees Are At Risk

Small, dying, or stressed trees are highly susceptible for an EAB infestation, as the beetles prefer to lay their eggs in these conditions, but healthy Ash trees are also vulnerable to an attack. Signs such as D-shaped exit holes, traces or paths in a back and forth pattern, or vertical fissures or cracks on the bark of the tree can signal an EAB infestation. A telltale sign of an infested tree is seen within its canopy. You will notice a die back from the top third of the Ash tree’s canopy, making its way down until it is completely dead. Small Ash trees can die withing one to two years of infestation, while larger and healthier trees could take up to four years.

What do I do if I have Infested Trees?

It is important that infested trees be removed in order to help combat this nationwide and highly threatening issue. Tree removal in MA is especially important since the EAB does not have any known predators in the area, making it extremely difficult to get rid of.
