Arborjet Donating Treatment to 50 Cornell University Ash Trees

Arborjet is donating treatment to protect 50 ash trees on the Cornell University campus as the next stop on the “Saving America’s Iconic Trees” tour, the company’s latest initiative to ensure the health and longevity of the country’s trees. The campaign targets America’s most beloved trees, (often located in public gardens, campuses and other historic sites) offering complimentary treatment to prevent insects, disease and poor health.

Arborjet has been working to help mitigate the devastation of invasive species, such as Emerald Ash Borer and to save trees in over 150 municipalities across the country. Forward thinking, certified arborists and municipalities are using tree injections to ensure that neighborhoods and urban forests are safely maintained. Trunk injections with TREE-äge®  not only help save trees, but are also far more cost effective than removing and replacing mature trees.

This cutting-edge treatment method:

  • Injects and seals the formulation directly into a tree’s vascular system. Nothing is placed in the soil or into the air.
  • Allows a tree to be treated for over 30 years if needed, before the costs equal that of removing  and replacing a tree. Most cities retreat every 2-3 years.
  • Has allowed major cities like Chicago and Milwaukee to save their trees for a cost of less than $50 per tree, every two years.
  • Saves mature ash trees, which reduce energy costs and stormwater runoff, while maintaining property values for homeowners.

Throughout 2018, Arborjet has donated high-profile treatments and hosted educational events across the country, and they continue to invite private homeowners, state, city, town and municipal leaders to nominate iconic trees in their communities for potential recognition and treatment. Over the past couple of months, they treated trees along a portion of the Appalachian Trail, at historic Fort Duffield in Kentucky, and they have a scheduled event at the 911 Memorial in NJ in the fall, among others.
