Protect your Ash trees from Emerald Ash Borer!
Can anything be done to save the Ash trees of the Kawarthas?
Yes. Even though the Emerald Ash Borer has been found in several areas in the Kawarthas there is still a chance to be proactive and protect your Ash trees.
One option for protection is the application of TreeAzin, an approved biological insecticide. TreeAzin is a natural product made from Neem tree seeds. The Neem tree grows in India and many common household products such as bath soap are made from the seed extracts. As documented by the Canadian Forest Service, TreeAzin does not pose a significant risk to bees or other non-target species. TreeAzin is injected into the tree every two years and may only be applied by a licensed pesticide applicator and one who has been trained by the supplier of TreeAzin.
Contact us today to schedule your free assessment and quote for the injections.
Injections are completed from June until August 31st.
