Adult Emerald Ash Borer

Specializing in Ash Tree Protection

The larvae of this insect is destroying Ash trees all across the country. Using the Arborjet tree injection method, we can save these trees.  Many parts of the Buffalo area have already lost thousands of Ash trees to this pest.

98% of the Ash trees that have received our Emerald Ash Borer Injections have been saved on average!

Much depends on the tree’s condition at treatment.  Here is the breakdown:

  • 6,955 Ash trees treated in the last 8 years. (Trees treated in 2019, 2020 not fully evaluated yet.)

  • 99.9% success for treatment of trees damaged less than 30% by visual inspection of tree canopy.

  • 86% success for treatment of Ash trees damaged 30-50% by visual inspection of tree canopy.

  • For trees damaged over 50%, the success rate diminishes rapidly.

(Results are as of 2/23/2021)

Tree Care

In addition to injecting Ash trees for Emerald Ash Borer, we also treat them for Anthracnose Disease.  We treat Sycamore trees for Anthracnose and Plant Bugs, Locust trees for Aphids and Plant Bugs, and can save Hemlock trees from the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid.  We treat for Bronze Birch Borer and Birch Leafminer.  We treat Crabapples for Apple Scab.  We also treat Elm Leaf Beetle, Magnolia Scale,  Chlorosis in Oak trees, and many other pest and disease problems.

Weed Control

Liquid weed controls are used because of their superior effectiveness.

Dry fertilizers are used on every application. Consequently, the Williams Lawn Care program will develop a greener, hardier, more weed-resistant turf.

Spotted Lanternfly

So far, only dead adults have been found in New York, but this pest has devastated many parts of Pennsylvania.  They are an incredible nuisance because they excrete a sticky substance that collects on anything below the trees affected, not just the leaves. That means toys, patios, decks, outdoor furniture, etc.   Then this sticky excrement usually causes a black mold to grow.  For more information please visit this website:  https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/resources/pests-diseases/hungry-pests/the-threat/spotted-lanternfly/spotted-lanternfly

Update 12-7-2020: The Spotted Lanternfly has been found in the Finger Lakes region of New York State.  We don't know how long it will be before entering the Buffalo area.  You can keep up to date on the spread of this pest here: https://nysipm.cornell.edu/environment/invasive-species-exotic-pests/spotted-lanternfly/spotted-lanternfly-ipm/introduction-native-range-and-current-range-us/
