Like to learn all you can about EAB? Just ask Scottie AshTree Seed.

I am an Arboriculturist from Chicago who after helplessly watching thousands of American Elm trees get killed by DED when young, vowed that if my generation was in charge during another mass tree killing event in the future. I would be on the forefront of research, educating municipalities and supplying endangered tree owners with every proven option available. In order for public to make well educated, best practice decisions.

Proudly I have achieved that very goal, by becoming one of our regions most knowledgeable on subject. With help from best EAB experts in the USA, at University of Illinois, Ohio & Michigan. Thru this open letter, I would like the public to know. That all Arborist receiving certification today, are instructed to ask their local University Extension representative for technical assistance when faced with any Tree/Plant health care issues.
