Ash Trees & Emerald Ash Borer Infestation

Ambler Borough wants to make you aware of a beetle infestation in ash trees that has made its way across North America and is present here in Ambler Borough.  Tens of millions of ash trees have been lost to this pest that feeds on them.  Once a tree is infested with beetles it can be killed within 3 to 4 years.  Infestation will occur before symptoms are noticeable.

Borough staff is working with an arborist to determine the extent of infestation in Borough parks and the downtown area.  Working with this inventory, we will be guided on a tree-by-tree basis as to whether to treat or remove each tree.   While both alternatives are costly, our hope is to not lose much of our canopy cover.

Homeowners with ash trees on their properties should not wait until EAB infestation is apparent.  We urge all homeowners who care for their trees to contact an arborist or tree service and have them take a look so you can determine what measures you will take to combat the EAB.
