Save your trees now from Emerald Ash Borer!

Emerald Ash BorerThe Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive pest introduced from Asia that attacks ash trees. Its larvae live under the bark of ash trees and feed on their vascular cambiums which may ultimately result in tree death.

One TREE-äge insecticide application provides your ash trees with two years of control from Emerald Ash Borer; longer residual than any other product. TREE-äge is only applied by certified professional applicators.

TREE-äge is injected into your ash trees, an alternative to soil drenching or spraying. A small precise dose is injected directly to the trunk to protect the tree from insects.

Don't wait! Save your ash trees by calling us today at 847-309-4994.

The following are some suggestions that will help to keep your lawn, trees and shrubs healthy and strong.
