Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Confirmed in Indian Head Park, IL
The Village of Indian Head Park has received official confirmation from the Illinois Department of Agriculture of the Emerald Ash Borer’s presence in Indian Head Park. Two ash trees in the parkway of the 6300 block of Keokuk Drive were confirmed to be infested with the Emerald Ash Borer. These trees are scheduled for removal.
Ash tree owners may ask about treatment options in order to avoid removing their trees; however, the only guaranteed method to control Emerald Ash Borer is to remove the host tree(s). When considering usage of insecticidal control, one should weigh the value of the tree against the cost of treatment.
“The Illinois Department of Agriculture certainly supports a tree owner’s right to determine for themselves whether a pesticide treatment is appropriate in their specific circumstances,” Illinois Department of Agriculture Bureau Manager of Environmental Programs Warren Goetsch, said. “Tree owners are encouraged to thoroughly research the various treatment options currently available and carefully weigh the costs associated with the required repeated treatments. Please be advised, however, that treatment of an Ash tree will not guarantee that a specific tree might eventually be required to be removed.”
