Emerald ash borer
It may be permissible in your community to fell a healthy ash tree. However, there are conditions: do it at a specific time of the year and replace it with another species. Felling a healthy ash tree can cost you up to 50% less than felling an infested tree. The amount you save reduces your costs of purchasing a replacement.

Emerald Ash Borer
Emerald ash borer is now present in Canada. It is a beetle that is ½ inches long and a beautiful metallic green. How is it spreading? It simply travels on crates, pallets, raw ash wood. In its larval stage, the EAB bores galleries in the wood. Once out, the insect flies and feeds on the leaves.
To date, there are no predators in all of North America. So trying to eradicate it is no easy task! Neither is saving the life of an infested ash tree!
