Emerald Ash Borer Information
Posted on Jan 1st, 2018

 
As you have been made aware, Johnson County Kansas is now the home of the Emerald Ash Borer ("EAB").  The county is under quarantine and any ash tree debris must be disposed of properly and at designated landfills.  You may find out more about the EAB on the Arbor Masters website at http://arbormasters.com/emerald-ash-borer-fact-sheet/
 
Leawood Estates is working with Arbor Masters to address the EAB in our community as the association has assumed responsibility for the maintenance of all street trees.  The Board and Arbor Masters are working on a rating system of all ash street trees and will be performing chemical treatments on some, removal of some and monitoring of others.
 
If you have ash trees on your property and would like to have Arbor Masters evaluate them for treatment, you may do so at the same rate that Leawood Estates Homes Association has negotiated.  You may contact Arbor Masters at (800)256-4193 or go visit them at www.arbormasters.com and be sure to tell them that you are a Leawood Estates Homes Association member.
