Meeting with the CEO, Peter Wild, of Arborjet for an extensive tour of their facility and intensive discussions about the upcoming product Emamectin Benzoate left Tim with an even higher confidence level for treating Ash trees in the tri-state area.

Here is a picture of the trees that appeared in Beth Bullwinkel’s Cincinnati Enquirer column, In the Garden.  That article was titled Develop a plan to save your ash trees.

Here is what Dick said in his email to Tim.

I have been meaning for some time to send you pictures of the Ash trees that you have been treating to protect against the Emerald Ash Borer.

They are spectacular!!! The treatments seem to be working!!! It would cost us thousands of dollars to have them taken down if they became infested and we could not replace them due to their size.

Wanted you to see the results of your work. Use these pictures if you want to show people what can be done.

Joshua Rinaldi interviewed Don Eberwine, horticulturalist program assistant with the Butler County OSU Extension at the end of 2007.  In Don’s eyes the future for ash trees was not good.

From December 2007

Fortunately the picture has changed.  Today Back Tree Service, Cincinnati, offers a 100% guarantee for ash trees treated early in the infestation.  To our knowledge, there is no other tree care company in Cincinnati that offers such a guarantee.

The right system to produce healthy, Emerald Ash Borer resistant ash trees includes the TREE-age formulation.  But there is more than having the right formulation. At Back Tree Service, Cincinnati, we use ArborJet’s unique tree injection system, and pneumatic vertical mulching which enhances the trees health and the absorption of the TREE-age formulation.

In this article by Joshua Rinaldi, Tim also agrees that back in 2007 the treatment options really didn’t stack up to what we have today.

Tim Back, President of Back Tree Service, Cincinnati has invested a lot of time in training and research to find the right solution to the problem.

By a forming a system from a number of technologies, Tim discovered how to save and protect ash trees in almost 100% of cases.

His system includes the TREE-age formulation with the active ingredient Emamectin Benzoate and the trunk injection delivery system from ArborJet.  In addition, Back Tree Service, Cincinnati, uses a special Pneumatic Vertical Mulching tool to promote tree health.

This happens through enabling aeration of the soil which stimulates root development. This is called soil remediation. This enables even distribution of the TREE-age formulation throughout the tree.

Both Pneumatic Vertical Mulching and trunk injection are recommended every two to three years.

Tim is an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) certified arborist.
