Q. Emeral Ash Borer

I have ash trees on my property in Philadelphia. Should I be concerned about the emerald ash borer? If so what are the prevention or treatment options available to deal with the insect.

Answer

My first advice to you would be to contact the Cooperative Extension Service in Philadelphia to see if this is a serious problem here in Philadelphia.  Here is the address, phone number, and email: 2 Penn Center Plaza, Suite 200, Philadelphia, 215-471-2200, PhiladelphiaExt@psu.edu.  It doesn't seem that your trees are infected, and that is good. It seems that the trees should be protected before infestation, and before there is any evidence of dieback.  Here is a link to information about the Emeral Ash Borer. It comes from  Perdue Unversity, a reliable source: http://www.ppdl.purdue.edu/PPDL/pubs/bayer.pdf
