Emerald Ash Borer

The Emerald Ash Borer Tree Checkup, Treatment and Removal Service

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an introduced insect pest from Asia that attacks and kills all species of ash (genus: Fraxinus) trees. This invasive pest devastated ash trees in southern Ontario and parts of the United States since its discovery in Detroit, Michigan in 2002. This pest can kill tree within 1-3 years of infection.

Emerald Ash Borer also known as EAB has already killed millions of trees in all of the Southwestern Ontario. EAB is spreading in and around the GTA, Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, and other major urban areas. More and more often residents of Toronto and surrounding cities will see a dead or dying ash tree in their neighborhood.
