Emerald Ash Borer Tree Damage

Signs of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Infestation:

  • In the beginning stages of an Emerald Ash Borer infestation the top canopy of the tree will thin or show signs of under development, due to an insignificant amount of nutrients and water. The EAB is destroying the vascular structure of the tree, which is prohibiting the tree from retrieving and harboring the nutrients it needs to stay full, healthy and living.
  • The woodpecker is both beautiful and annoying. This bird is a very useful tool if you may be experiencing an Emerald Ash Borer outbreak. The more woodpeckers in your yard, hammering on your trees, the more likely it is that your tree has a clan of assassins that are attempting to eat your beautiful tree from the inside out.
  • New sprouts at base of tree.
  • There will also be signs of small D-shaped holes in the bark of your tree.
  • S-shaped pattern in the tree bark.
  • The presence of Adult Emerald Ash Borer or Larvae
