Whether or not you should treat an ash tree depends on how close you are to a tree the is confirmed to be infested as well as the health of the tree and other factors. If you are west of I-25 in Adams county and are going to treat next year is probably the year to start treatments.

In terms of cost, it’s really hard to give a good estimate it varies widely based on the type of treatment, size of the tree and the company. The best thing to do is get at least three quotes and make sure you are comparing comparable treatments.
