Cottage Grove Discount Program for Emerald Ash Borer Prevention
Emerald Ash Borer was confirmed in Cottage Grove in February of 2018 and is infesting and killing ash trees in your community. Residents must take action to treat or remove their tree before it’s too late! Act now and save at least 15% on treatments with a special discount for Cottage Grove residents through October 2022!
You can protect your ash tree for 20 years for less than the cost to remove and replace it.
If you have an ash tree, now is the time to decide what to do. Ash trees can either be protected or removed. Cottage Grove is encouraging residents to treat large, well-placed, healthy private ash trees as part of an EAB treatment program.
Considerations for Treatment:
- Is the size of your tree is greater than 10” in diameter?
- Is your tree competing with other trees or infrastructure?
- Does your tree show no more than 30% of canopy decline if infestation is suspected?
Most importantly, treating an ash tree is more cost-effective than removal. In addition, you maintain the tree benefits and value of a mature tree to your property!
