Why Are These Ash Trees Healthy?

Yes, there's a lot of gloom and doom for Ash Trees. Emerald Ash Borers are destroying Ash so quickly that it seems like we blink and they're dead. But wait, that's not quite true. Many Ash trees are still alive and well.

Robert Poley, Giroud ISA Certified Arborist, gives us a front row view of several Ash trees in Lower Gwynedd. Treated with Tree-age trunk injections last year, these beauties are thriving with no signs of Emerald Ash Borer activity.

Here's the challenge. The Emerald Ash Borer control only works if your Ash trees are still healthy. Have your Giroud Arborist check your Ash trees while there's still time. Contact us today for a free evaluation.

Many of us will want to fill the empty space with a beautiful new tree. But, what tree is best for your landscape?

New Virus Threat from Ticks

Ticks Are Spreading Powassan Virus 100% Organic Tick Control Stops the Bites and Safely Protects Children, Pets and Pollinators

Now there's even more reason to fear ticks and it's life threatening. It's the Powassan Virus. Just like Lyme Disease, Powassan is spread by Deer Ticks; making Tick Control more essential than ever.

A rare but deadly virus, Powassan can be transmitted in as little as 15 minutes according to the CDC. By contrast, it takes 24 hours for a tick to infect a person or pet with Lyme Disease. That's precious little time to see the tick and remove it before becoming infected.

Scientists have been tracking tick populations and expect this season to be especially bad.
