Insecticides used to control EAB are highly toxic and more concentrated than those used in common landscape use.  If you use the information on this site as guidance in treating trees, you do so AT YOUR OWN RISK. Also, it is illegal for a homeowner to treat an ash tree on city property (trees between the street and sidewalk) and there is nothing to gain in doing so since without a legal permit from the city your tree is slated for ultimate removal. The positioning of right of way ash trees near the street means that insecticides applied to the soil have a very short path to contaminating Lincoln’s storm water system.
