MARYLAND ALERT!!!
Today, one of our Maryland Licensed & Registered Tree Experts on staff, found evidence of EMERALD ASH BORER while visiting a property in Sharpsburg, MD. This photo shows an example of “wood flecking” on an Ash tree. “Woodpecker flecking,” as shown here, may occur when woodpeckers feed aggressively due to high numbers of insects inside a tree. Look for small strips of bark missing from high branches of ash trees as one clue to a potential emerald ash borer infestation.
