A fifth of all trees is an ash on the island of Montreal. We find this tree species in large numbers in the Montreal area because of its resistance to difficult growing conditions such as pollution, road salt and soil compaction. To date, thousands of these deciduous trees are threatened. Many will be destroyed by an insect pest, the emerald ash borer. We must act now! If nothing is done, hundreds of thousands of ash could be lost over the next 10 to 20 years.

Native to Southeast Asia, the emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) is a small metallic green insect about 2 cm which only attacks ash trees. Since its discovery in North America in 2002, it already killed no less than 75 million ash trees! EAB is now in your garden this year may be your last chance to save your ash.

Preventive treatment
If your ash shows no signs of decline, do treat against the emerald with a biopesticide. The city of Montreal uses TreeAzin a low impact product whose active ingredient is derived from the neem tree, a tree that grows naturally in India and East Africa, has long been used for its medicinal, culinary and insecticidal properties. You can continue to enjoy the benefits of your ash and the value it adds to your property.
