I recently had a tree service cut up several dead trees and trim dead limbs. I asked about seven mature ash trees on my property. They said that none of the trees appear to be infected yet, and they advised me that there is now a treatment (an injection?) that can save these trees. I'd like your opinion on whether this treatment, or any treatment, is effective; if it's permanent or temporary; if it's a one-time treatment or required on a regular basis; and if you can recommend a tree service in the Xenia area that is reliable for this service.

Ron, here is a link to our information on the different treatment options. There are many effective ones. http://ashalert.osu.edu/Secondary/secondary.asp?id=46

As to an arborist for your location you can either check the list available at http://www.isa-arbor.com/ or contact your county OSU Extension office to see if they have a list.
