Can I pre-treat my Ash tree for EAB? The ash tree is approximately 14 years old. There appears to be no symptoms/infestation at this time.

EAB has not yet been found in your county, so we wouldn't start treating quite yet.
The best time to treat with an imidicloprid soil drench would be early spring, like March.
You have the time to wait and can treat after they arrive. (but hope they don't!)
