Lafayette Square, Ash Treatment Event

Give back to your community and help spread public awareness about the importance of preserving the country’s trees and urban forests. In this effort and to increase public awareness about Emerald Ash Borer, Arborjet Inc. has partnered with the St. Louis Forestry department to “adopt” the ash trees in Lafayette Square. Emerald Ash Borer is a bright metallic green beetle originally found in eastern Asia. The tiny beetle feeds and breeds exclusively on Ash trees. Arborjet is seeking customer support and interested applicators to join in this special treatment event. Bring your own drill, hammer and tree injection equipment, and Arborjet staff and distributors will be on site to provide TREE-age G4, Arborplugs, drill bits and hands on training. For those interested in learning more about the treatment of EAB bring your questions and be ready to get some valuable hands-on experience!

The trees of historic Lafayette Park (considered by many historians to be the oldest city park west of the Mississippi) make up one of the most popular urban forests in the St. Louis region. There are approximately 60 Ash trees in Lafayette Square that need treatment. Depending on applicator turnout, it should only take a few hours to complete the tree injections. Arborjet is hoping for a great turnout to help fight EAB in St. Louis.


This is part of the company’s latest initiative, “Saving America’s Iconic Trees,” to ensure the health and longevity of the country’s trees. The campaign targets America’s most beloved trees, offering complimentary treatment to prevent insects, disease and poor health. Throughout 2018, Arborjet will donate high-profile treatments and host educational events across the country. The company invites homeowners, state, city, town and municipal leaders to nominate iconic trees in their communities for potential recognition and treatment by visiting
