The Village has been treating some of Glencoe’s ash tree inventory with an insecticide treatment in an effort to protect healthy ash trees from emerald ash borer (EAB).
The product used is Tree-age (active ingredient – emamectin benzoate), which is a systematic insecticide that is injected into the trunk. For the second year in a row, the contractor bid specification includes a provision to offer the Village’s unit pricing to residents interested in treating their own private ash trees. Beinlich Tree Service is the selected contractor for 2014 at a unit price of $6.45 per diameter inch.
