In this engaging and informative video, join the conversation with experts Wes Rivers and Kimberlee Peterson as they delve into the pressing issue of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), an insidious invasive pest that has taken root in North Texas. Emerald Ash Borer has a history that traces back to its origins in Asia. The EAB has now infiltrated the region, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake.

Kimberlee and Wes provide invaluable insights into identifying the telltale signs of EAB infestation. This ranges from canopy dieback and thinning to the presence of epicormic sprouts and D-shaped exit holes. They even reveal how woodpeckers play a role in this destructive cycle. They cause blonding on trees as they relentlessly peck to uncover the feast beneath the bark.

As the conversation unfolds, they shed light on the proactive steps taken by some cities like Dallas and Denton to safeguard their significant ash tree populations. However, faced with the staggering costs of treatment, the reality is that not all trees can be saved. This raises a crucial question: What is the most prudent approach when dealing with EAB-infested trees?

Early detection emerges as the critical key to mitigating the impact of this relentless pest. The experts emphasize the importance of recognizing ash trees on your property and being vigilant for any signs of infestation. For those unsure, they offer guidance on how to differentiate ash trees from other species, highlighting their distinct compound leaves and opposite branching.

Armed with this knowledge, viewers are encouraged to seek expert advice from arborists or Texas A&M Forest Service employees. Through consultations with ISA certified professionals, individuals can make informed decisions to protect their precious trees from the devastating consequences of EAB.
