What are the advantages of treatment?

The entire community benefits from a mature tree canopy. An average ash tree in Woodbury will keep pollution from rivers and lakes, reduce CO2 in the atmosphere by 600 or more pounds every year, and produce the cooling effect of 10 room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours per day. Treating an ash tree for 20 years is more cost-effective than removal and replacement.
