Annual Inspections Uncover Hidden Problems
On his latest inspection at this property, Rob saw that an Ash Tree was dead, another victim of the Emerald Ash Borer. Josh, Saul, and Giroud Groundman, Ken O’Connor, worked together to carefully remove this tree. Ash tree removals are tricky. That’s because Ash trees have tight veins, and as the Emerald Ash Borer larvae chew their way through the tree, water circulation is cut off. This makes the Ash tree very brittle and branches break easily.
“You do not want to leave a dead Ash on your property,” warns Rob. “It doesn’t take much to knock down one of those heavy branches, or even the whole tree for that matter!”
