The diagnosis report will be expedited by an experienced tree company when emerald ash borers are the suspected culprit of the ash tree's decline.

Woodpeckers feed upon the larvae under the tree bark and there will be a noticeable increase in these birds on the property. An infected tree will develop cracks and splits along its branches due to its weakened health state. The emerald ash borers hide in crevices in the bark and when brittle bark is peeled away the inner tree wood will reveal tunnels where the larvae have traveled. Residential grounds will be examined for an obvious act of these lethal insect pests. Upon definite confirmation, the tree doctor will present a detailed tree evaluation report and treatment requirements and an on-going maintenance and care program will be developed by the best Arlington, Texas experienced tree company.
