What complicates matters is many homeowners have absolutely no idea what species of trees they have growing on their property. So when ash borer damage is discovered it's often too late to do anything to save the trees.

I have a fifty foot marshall ash in my front yard. I'ts been treated since the bug was spotted in OHIO. It's as healthy as the day I had it planted.

it's all a matter of what's important in one's life...my Marshall Ash is important to me. Rather pay for a beautiful tree than another fire station in the township.

Doesn't this fire station have to be voted upon by the residents of the township first?
