Emerald Ash Borer – Trees have been treated

The HOA Board just wanted to touch base with everyone, in the event you read the Longmont Times Call this morning. As of yesterday, the Emerald Ash Borer is now in Longmont, at 9th/Hover.  This is about 3 years faster than it was originally expected to reach Longmont, from the EAB infestation that was found in Boulder.  As reported, the Emerald Ash Borer insect is devastating to ASH trees.  You can only try to prevent an infestation, as there are not remedies to an infestation, other than a chainsaw.

All of the ASH trees in the community were treated for Emerald Ash Borer this spring, so the HOA should not have anything to worry about. We will continue to need to treat the ASH trees on an annual basis, to ensure we continue to try and prevent an infestation, as the majority of the trees along the street are ASH trees, and the loss of the ASH trees would be devastating to the overall look of the community.
