The Emerald Ash Borer Found in Monroe, Steuben, and Livingston Counties The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has been confirmed at sites in Monroe, Steuben, and Livingston counties as well as other counties in NY. Since its discovery in Southeastern Michigan in 2002, the EAB is responsible for the destruction of over 70 million ash trees in the U.S. The beetle has been moving steadily outward from its first discovered infestation in Detroit, Michigan, and has now been found in 13 states and two neighboring Canadian provinces. There are no economical alternatives to treating Ash trees on a forest scale basis. However for residential trees, various methods of application are available which protect trees from 1 to 3 years. Genesee Tree Service is an affiliate and provides treatment for residential trees in the Rochester area and can be contacted at 585-385-4060. Recommendations for Ash within forested stands vary based on trees sizes and quantity. For larger Ash trees capable of being sawn for lumber, a commercial harvest is recommended to capture the value of the trees before they are compromised by EAB. Typically a minimum of 100 Ash trees are needed for a commercial harvest to be viable. Smaller Ash trees can be harvested for firewood or can be cut and left to recycle back into the soil. Currently Ash timber prices are excellent and demand is high. By thinning younger Ash trees out, other hardwood crop trees are able to repopulate the stand. Either of these methods are desirable as they slow the progression of the EAB through the regions, with fewer host trees being available. Timing of these management activities are best prescribed through the help of a consulting forester.
