Protect the Pine Hollow Arboretum's 

                                   Ash Trees


The Pine Hollow Arboretum is an outdoor museum—a special kind of museum where the exhibits are green and growing. The Arboretum has a collection of beautiful trees from all over the world, planted by Dr. John Abbuhl over the past 50 years as well as a natural forest with many native trees and wildlife. 

We have several mature  Green and Black Ash Trees (Fraxinus pennsylvanica and  Fraxinus nigra) which are critical to the ecological health of the Arboretum's property. We are asking you to help us in our endeavor to protect these trees from the imminent threat of the Emerald Ash Borer.   Without proactive protective measures, the survival of these trees is in great danger.  

Our plan is to do a chemical trunk injection on healthy Ash trees.  We typically do not use any type of pesticide on the property, but the benefits of such a treatment far outweigh the risks.  Trunk injection works systemically and will ensure that the chemical is contained within the tree to prevent soil, water or air contamination.  By preserving the heath of our Ash trees, we hope to help slow the spread of EAB in the area and to contribute to future Ash conservation efforts such as seed banking.
