2023 UPDATE: We now recommend a 2-year treatment for ALL Ash trees. Delivery method does require small holes to be drilled into the cambium but should heal within one growing season. Alternate annual trunk sprays can be done at an increased cost. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
