Twin Cities Emerald Ash Borer Tree Removal

Emerald ash borer (EAB) is an invasive insect species that has killed hundreds of millions of ash trees in the United States. Adult EABs feed on ash tree leaves and then lay their eggs beneath the bark, where the larvae kill the trees by tunneling through their vital tissue.

Protect your property and our native ecosystems with emerald ash borer tree removal from JB Tree Care & Landscaping.

Why is Emerald Ash Borer Tree Removal Important?

Once EAB has attacked a tree, the tree usually dies within four years, but it can die in as little as two. If infested trees are not promptly treated or removed, the pest will quickly kill all ash trees in the area.

Removing a tree while it is still alive is easier and less expensive than removing a tree already killed by EAB, which quickly dries out and becomes brittle. Dead branches can easily crack and fall, posing a danger to people and your property.

Does My Ash Tree Have Emerald Ash Borer?

Trees affected by EAB display recognizable symptoms. Know the signs:

  • S-shaped tunnels beneath the bark
  • Vertical bark splits
  • Woodpecker activity

Use this diagnostic guide to determine whether your tree has been attacked by EAB. Ash trees are especially common in the following cities:

  • Waconia
  • Shakopee
  • St. Bonifacius
  • Norwood Young America
