The ash tree – scientific name of fraxinus – is undoubtedly included in the list of America’s beloved trees for being sturdy and tough. However, planting this tree on your backyard poses a serious danger to you and your family. The ash tree is threatened by the EAB or emerald ash borer, a tiny beetle that seems intent on eradicating the entire ash tree species.  Once the ash tree has been infected by the emerald tree borer, the wood becomes brittle, posing a serious threat to your home’s structure as well as to your loved ones.
