Emerald Ash Borer

State officials confirmed the presence of Emerald Ash Borer in the City of Arvada, near Lakewood, in 2020. Signs of an EAB infested ash tree includes a thinning canopy or dead branches in the top and center of the canopy, with likely woodpecker damage due to woodpeckers’ excavation to find EAB larva under the bark. The bark will take on a blondish color, as opposed to its normal gray color, in a result known as "blonding". Most homeowner’s insurance does not cover the treatment or removal of trees infested by emerald ash borer or any other pest, fungus, or disease. Guarding against this destructive pest takes a professional like Donovan Arborists.
