Ash Rust Treatment
Ash Rust is a rare occurrence in Philadelphia but it’s cause for serious concern when it erupts. Already plagued by health problems including the fatal Emerald Ash Borer, Ash Rust stresses Ash Trees and can further erode tree health.
Ash Rust infects White, Green and sometimes Black Ash. Symptoms start as small yellow to yellow-orange spots on leaves beginning in Mid-May. Wart like-swellings may also erupt and leaves often become distorted. By July, heavily infected Ash trees may have significant leaf loss.

Preventative treatment is the best control but is not recommended since the disease only occurs sporadically. Giroud Tree and Lawn recommends the following tree service actions:
- Schedule Ash Tree Inspection Now: Have an ISA Certified Arborist evaluate overall health of the tree and determine the best actions to protect tree health.
- Reduce Tree Stress: In the fall, deep root fertilization, soil amendments, vitamins and nutrients can help to boost the tree’s immune system
- Order Emerald Ash Borer Treatment: A fatal pest, treatment is the only way to protect Ash Trees from Emerald Ash Borer. If the Ash Tree is valuable to the landscape, Emerald Ash Borer treatment is critical.
- Regular Monitoring: Because Ash Trees face formidable health issue, it is important to have professional inspections regularly to catch emerging issues early.
