Unfortunately EAB has been confirmed in the City of Peterborough. Since it has been found in regions surrounding the city we knew it was only a matter of time, but it’s still a shock.
The City of Peterborough writes in a media release from today (August 26th):
The Ministry of Natural Resources has confirmed that the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has been found in the City of Peterborough. Samples collected from 3 insect traps in the south and east of the City were confirmed as EAB by the Invasive Species Centre in Sault Ste. Marie.
“We are not seeing any significant EAB damage as yet, so owners of ash trees still have the option of treating their trees in 2015”, said Paul Hambidge, Urban Forest Specialist with the City. Owners of ash trees are urged to consider treatment of healthy ash trees in good condition as a cost-effective solution that will help preserve the urban forest and the many other benefits that come with tree ownership.
Logan Tree Experts has been protecting our client’s ash trees from EAB for the past two years using TreeAzin, a pesticide injected into the trees. There are only 5 more days to inject ash trees this year (as per product specifications).
