Nebraska Extension in Lancaster County and the Nebraska Forest Service has scheduled another Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) seminar to provide homeowners with the information they need to make good decisions about the care of their ash trees. Cost is $15 per person/couple for one set of educational materials. Pay at the door, making checks payable to Nebraska Extension in Lancaster County.

Learn how to identify ash trees. If you are unsure if a tree in your landscape is an ash, bring small branch samples or pictures for identification. Learn how to determine which of your trees are the best candidates for treatment. Many homeowners will decide to let some trees die, particularly low-vigor trees, those in poor locations or with existing problems. Finally, learn about the available treatment methods, their advantages and disadvantages and when they should be applied. NOTE: Treatment is NOT recommended until EAB has been confirmed within 15 miles of your location.

Early June brought the confirmation of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) within the state. Concern about this invasive insect and its impact on our community trees is high. Many homeowners have questions about their trees and potential treatment options available to them. All ash species—including the popular cultivars Autumn Purple, Marshall’s Seedless, Patmore, Skyline and Summit—will be at risk from this insect, along with all wild ash trees.
