The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) beetle is relatively new to the state of Colorado, but it’s a pest that is very concerning to city and state of Colorado Agriculture Officials. The Emerald Ash Borer is to Ash trees what the Mountain Pine Beetles are to pine trees in the Rocky Mountain Region, total devastation.
If you suspect your Ash trees may be infested, you need the help of a professional tree service company. A Touch of Class Tree Service is here to help you. Here’s a quick look at some of the signs and symptoms of a tree infested with EAB:
