What You Can Do to Help
The Village of Arlington Heights is
encouraging resident involvement to help
fight this dynamic and extensive natural
disaster. A Peopleʼs Choice Program is
being implemented where residents will
have the choice to treat or not to treat their
parkway Ash tree(s) at their own expense.
Any trees that are not treated will probably
be removed by the Village if the treeʼs
condition indicates such removal.
Interested residents are being asked to
volunteer to become the leaders of their
blocks and/or homeowners associations.
These captains will encourage participation
among their neighbors and facilitate
program logistics. Interested residents
should call the Forestry Unit at
847-368-5848 for more information.
Unfortunately, the Village is not able to pay
for a treatment program due to the
exorbitant costs involved in a Village-wide
program. Our Forestry Unit personnel will
work closely with program participants and
offer available resources to promote public
There are several commercially-applied
pesticide options that have been labeled as
reduced-risk insecticides by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to
treat EAB. Based on recent research,
treatment is now a viable option to protect
Ash trees. Although chemical treatments
are not 100 percent effective, they have
been shown to preserve Ash trees if applied
according to the pesticideʼs label and
before an Ash tree is more than 50% dead.
Three common treatment options are trunk
injections, soil drench/injections, and trunk
sprays. There are advantages and
disadvantages to all treatment options
which are discussed in detail on the
Villageʼs website at www.vah.com.
