Checking for ash tree damage

Asked July 6, 2015, 12:58 PM EDT

Hello! I am wondering if the county comes out randomly to check for ash tree damage by borers .... We are a community of homes with many 10 year old ash trees.... Is this something that we can/should request ? Is there a fee? Thanks so much....
