Did you know that the Emerald Ash Borer has been confirmed in Barrington, IL?
Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an invasive pest new to our area. The pest is a native of Asia and was most likely brought to this country in shipping crate lumber. This pest lays eggs on ash tree specimens (the only species it currently infects.) The larvae burrow into the vascular tissue of the trees, just below the surface of the bark. The larvae feed on this tissue during the course of their development. The damaged tissue is that which feeds the tree. The trees can no longer provide food for themselves, causing their demise and ultimate death. All ash tree species are susceptible and will most likely fail within the next few years. Ash specimens are no longer a viable species for our area.
Will the Village remove my privately-owned trees?
No. Private property maintenance issues are just that, private. As with Dutch Elm Disease, both State statute and Village code require the prompt removal and destruction of any infested ash tree found on private property. Inspection and enforcement is handled through the Village’s Engineering and Building Department.
Are there treatment options?
While there are several treatment options available, the most promising treatments are injectable insecticides in uninfested trees. The injectable products must be applied by a professional and are not available for sale to the general public. You should consult a professional, preferably a certified arborist, to discuss treatment options, costs, and effectiveness of treatments.
