Ash Tree Identification and Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Symptom Checker Mobile App
Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) attacks only members of the Fraxinus genus.
How does it work?
Ash trees can be identified by looking at their foliage and bark. White ash (Fraxinus americana) and Green ash (Fraxinus Pennsylvania) are the common species found in Illinois. Mountain Ash is not a true ash and therefore is not threatened by EAB. The Ash Tree Identification and Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Symptom Checker Mobile App is designed to assist in Ash Tree ID and Checking for EAB Symptoms. Typically hard savings are seen the moment GoCanvas is deployed.
Identify whether your tree is an ash by checking the leaves, leaflets, bark, and fall colors. Once you have determined you have an ash tree, check for signs and symptoms of EAB, such as D-shaped exit holes in the bark, serpentine tunnels under the bark, unusual woodpecker activity, and vertical splits in the bark.
Using this convenient smartphone/tablet app, you can easily document evidence of EAB in a tree and submit the evidence to the national EAB hotline, as well as locate your nearest certified arborist to address the issue and treat your ash tree. Ensure the health of your ash trees with the Ash Tree Identification and Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Symptom Checker. Use this app to best identify an ash species as part of tree care, in order to identify the spread of EAB, a green beetle that feeds on ash wood. As homeowners, prevent emerald ash borer infestation in the tens of millions on ash bark and wood through proper tree service, where you determine if EAB is feeding on your trees.
