Treated for Emerald Ash Borer Tree Tags

The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive species of beetle from Asia that is killing ash trees all over the United States. Cities where the emerald ash borer is present, are protecting their public ash trees, while encouraging residents to treat their private ash trees.

Once a tree has been treated, it is marked with a metal tag saying that was treated, and other indicators such as the year or a serial number.

Are you a tree service company or city department who is treating ash trees for the Emerald Ash Borer? Then contact us today for a free quote on your customized “EAB Treated” tags. Our tree tags come in a variety of shapes and sizes to meet your customization needs. EAB Tags are usually nailed into the tree at eye level to ensure they can be seen. If you have an ash tree that you think might be infected, please get it tested and treated to help stop the spread of the Emerald Ash Borer!
