Winona, MN area tree enthusiasts are likely familiar with the emerald ash borer thanks to its consistently troubling presence in Minnesota. Maier Tree and Lawn’s comprehensive forestry services include precise disease management techniques to help lessen the impact the emerald ash borer infestation has on homeowner’s trees.

Emerald ash borers can tear through a community’s ash trees quickly. They eat away at the bark of trees, burrow into trunks, and divert the necessary nutrients that ash trees need to survive. In this manner, they can quickly kill trees and then spread to other ash trees nearby. Because of the devastation they can cause, quarantines on wood and tree transport are frequently in effect across Minnesota. If emerald ash borers have already been identified in your area, disease management support may be the next best step.

Planning, planting, and tree maintenance programs need disease management in order to mitigate the impact emerald ash borer has on local trees. Disease management may include tree injections, tree removal, and other risk-reducing care methods. Each step is catered to the environment to best preserve every level of the ecosystem. Once an infested tree has been identified, the proper steps are taken to ensure the health and safety of surrounding plants and trees.
