When Should Pesticides Be Used?

Because pesticides must be applied yearly, they are best-used to protect high value trees or to keep individual ash alive until non-susceptible replacement trees are large enough to provide shade benefit.

A severely compromised ash tree, regardless of the cause of its poor condition, is not a good candidate for preventative or curative treatment.

Property owners should take the long term cost of prevention into account decide when deciding whether to use pesticides to protect their ash trees from EAB. Since ash trees must be treated every year for an indefinite period, the cost of chemical protection may quickly exceed the cost of removing and replacing them.
