Des Plaines allows Homeowner Treatment For Emerald Ash Borer:
Treatments are needed every year to protect trees from EAB and are recommended only for homeowners in the quarantined area, which Des Plaines is included.
Treatments for EAB may be more effective if overall tree health is maintained. Therefore, it is important to fertilize trees in the fall or spring and water regularly. Because of the expense of yearly treatment, it is important to weigh the decision to treat carefully. Consider the value of the tree in relation to treatment costs. Also consider the
health of the tree. It is important to remember that treatments work best as a preventive measure. Once a tree is noticeably infested, it is usually too late to save it. Ash trees can live with Emerald Ash Borer infestation for several years before they start to exhibit any symptoms.
