Are the leaves in your ash trees thinning in the upper third of their canopies? Are woodpecker holes evident? Are there D-shaped holes evident in the bark? If these signs are present, the tree will probably die. With our recent weather, your chances are much greater that your ash tree will cause you to yell “TIMBER.”
If your ash tree is not showing any of the above symptoms, you may have time to save it. A professional tree company with an arborist on staff can guide you through the procedure.
The cost may be high, but removing the tree is also expensive, and you may need to buy a replacement one for the bare spot in your landscape.
If there are many affected trees in your neighborhood, the company may offer discounts for removal.
Healthy trees provide cleaner air, water conservation and lower energy costs while reducing water runoff.
People love trees if they are planted in the right place and given the care they need.
Let’s hug a tree today.
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago; the
next best time is today.”
– Chinese proverb
