I have ash trees in their second year of emerald ash borer. Is there anything that can be done to save the trees? Also I have old and young willow trees next to my pond and two of four have died this year. Any thoughts on why?

Hi Vince,

Thanks for your question. There are a few things that you can do with a tree infested with EAB:

  • Report it to your state officials
  • Do nothing
  • Remove the ash tree
  • Treat with insecticide
  • Deal with the victims

For the willow trees, you will probably want to talk with a local extension forester to share with them some pictures and more details around the location and symptoms of the trees.
