How do I prevent my tree from being infested with Emerald Ash Borer (EAB)?

The only way to prevent your ash tree from becoming infested with EAB is to have it treated with an appropriate pesticide. However, this will need to be applied regularly every 1 to 3 years depending on the pesticide used. A better long term solution is to remove the tree and replace with an alternative species. Visit the EAB page for more information.
