EAB Treatment Information

At Sustainable Atwood we know that correcting ecological problems is complex.  Ordinarily, the earth doesn’t need our help; the checks and balances are, well, natural.  When humans get in the mix–trying to fix what we broke–it can take years before we find our fix broke something else, yet again.   The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) was introduced to the U.S. in shipping materials from China and has killed millions and millions of ash trees, and will kill many more.  It’s important to save trees whenever possible. There are treatments available to protect ash trees from the EAB. Please be sure to read this before making your choice. Let’s be sure our fix doesn’t break anything else, lest we lose the forest for the trees.
