    I was looking at getting in to this anyone have or used it ? Any ballpark figures on what is charged or if you heard of the going rate for a treatment ?

    The EAB is now only one County over so if it sounds like a good deal I think it would be a good add on for the spring.

    I did look at the charts and cost for material for one tree but don't know the going rate to charge.Don't want to be to high or low.

    I suggest you speak with Peter Wild directly. He's a good guy.

    From what I have read and all the studies that I have seen Tree-Age from ArborJet is the way to go. Almost 100% effectiveness and you shouls only need to do it every other year. I have heard of prices about $10.00 dollars a caliper inch. I have an ArborJet that I use and next year will be pushing EAB treatments as they are also just one county away.

    Peter Wilde is the DA MAN
    His company is one of the best
    EAB is decimating trees, unbelievable
    They are the go to company for Chicago, and most of Michigan

    So do you get a lot of calls for it or do you have to push for sales?

    I received a few requests this year and really don't push it yet. Next year I will push it harder.

    Good thread Mike. I've been wondering the same thing. EAB is 1 county away from me also. I've had a few lawn customers ask me about it so I'm looking at doing it next year. I understand Arbojet is the way to go.
