The ash borer epidemic has invaded Tulip Gardens. After consulting with the arborist from BrightView, the 9 ash trees in the best condition and in the most strategic locations were identified for treatment. The remaining ash trees will be removed.
On July 3, the arborist treated these 9 trees by injecting insecticide into the tree trunks. This must be repeated every two years for 10 years.The treatment is 85% effective. The trees receiving treatment are in the center courtyard plus the huge 110-year-old ash tree on the west side of building 10.
One of the benefits of pruning and treating these trees is that it stimulates growth, so the canopies of the trees will flourish.
