Clarence, New York – June 24, 2009 – The Tree Doctor, a full serivce tree company, with offices in Clarence and West Falls, New York, has been following the spread of Emerald Ash Borer for the last five years throughout the Midwest and Eastern United States. This Asian beetle infests and kills North American as Species (Fraxinus sp.) including green, white, balck and blue ash. Thus, all native ash trees are susceptible. Signs of infection include tree canopy, dieback, yellowing, and browning of leaves. Most trees die within 2 to 4 years of becoming infested. The Tree Doctor is up-to-date on the latest scientific information about this pest and warns that there is a lot of misinformation out there. Up to 14% of all trees in Western New York are ash trees. Owners of ash trees should take action now to protect their trees.
The Tree Doctor is fully licensed to preventatiivley treat ash trees before and after infestations occur. Its staff of 20 trained arborists, of which 10 are internationally certified, is currently providing information and treatments to many homeowners, golf courses, and commerical properties interested in protecting their ash trees.
