The emerald ash borer (EAB), a metallic green insect that was accidentally brought to the United States in 2002, has been found in 29 states as of 2017. The insect was found in Pennsylvania in 2007 and in Delaware in 2016.
The emerald ash borer attacks ash trees, and has destroyed the ash population in many of the states where infestation has occurred. Agencies have been working to fight the spread of EAB, but the insects continue to be discovered in new areas. Some treatments are available, and Stein Tree Service is licensed to apply the necessary insecticides in Delaware and Pennsylvania.

A Wilmington Certified Arborist from Stein Tree Service Discusses Why Your Contractor Should be Insured
People often ask if I am insured. Why is insurance so important to a certified arborist or any other contracted worker?
