Emerald Ash Borer

Asked July 23, 2017, 10:23 PM EDT

I serve on the condo board of Villas of Stony Farm at Six Mile and Stony Brook. We had 35 ash trees, 12 of which had to be replaced last year due to the Emerald Ash Borer. We have 3 or 4 that are clearly dying this year. We've been given a bid from Tru Green to treat the ones that are not showing signs of infestation yet. We are trying to decide if we should spend thousands of dollars on a course of treatment that may have to on for 10-12 years or just cut down our remaining ash trees and plant another variety. We'd like to know how effective the treatment can be expected to be. If we treat 20 trees will we save 20 trees or should we expect that some may succumb anyway?
