Summary

 

 

Why can′t the Ontario Municipalities PROTECT their Ash Trees against Emerald Ash Borer ?!?!

 

Ash Trees CANNOT BE PROTECTED because the Government of Ontario has IMPOSED ARBITRARY, NEEDLESS, AND RECKLESS PROHIBITION against the use of pest control products in the Urban Landscape.

 

Because Ontario IMPOSED PROVINCE-WIDE PROHIBITION, its municipalities have LOST MILLIONS OF ASH TREES because SAFE AND EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS WERE ARBITRARILY AND NEEDLESSLY PROHIBITED.

 

Why can′t Ontario Municipalities PROTECT their Ash Trees, just like the City of Milwaukee, in the State of Wisconsin ?

 

Milwaukee can PROTECT its Ash Trees against Emerald Ash Borer because it is ALLOWED TO USE SAFE AND EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS.

 

In Milwaukee, SAFE AND EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS ARE NOT ARBITRARILY AND NEEDLESSLY PROHIBITED.

 

Consequently, Milwaukee HAS NOT LOST A SINGLE ASH TREE because of SAFE AND EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS.

 

Conversely, Ontario Municipalities HAVE LOST MILLIONS OF ASH TREES because SAFE AND EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS ARE ARBITRARILY AND NEEDLESSLY PROHIBITED.

 

In Milwaukee, where RECKLESS PROHIBITION HAS NOT BEEN IMPOSED, NO ASH TREES HAVE DIED because VALID INSECTICIDES ARE ALLOWED.

 

In Ontario, WHO CAN AFFORD THIS #@!!% BAN NONSENSE ?!?!

Milwaukee Has Not Lost A Single Ash Tree Because Of Insecticide Treatments With TreeAge

 

 

A decade ago, Municipal Officials feared Emerald Ash Borer would spell doom for Ash Trees.

 

Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive species that is HIGHLY DESTRUCTIVE to Ash Trees.

 

But a counter-punch emerged in the form of Emamectin Benzoate ( TreeAge ), a SAFE AND EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDE TREATMENT that can not only SAVE INFESTED Ash Trees, but « INOCULATE » them against the Emerald Ash Borer.

 

TreeAge is applied through holes that are drilled into the trunk of the Ash Tree, and it is the MOST EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDE TREATMENT to control Emerald Ash Borer.

 

The City of Milwaukee has been using INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS for four years WITHOUT LOSING ONE TREE to the Emerald Ash Borer.

 

By comparison, municipalities throughout the Province of Ontario ARE ARBITRARILY PROHIBITED FROM USING TREEAGE, and MILLIONS OF TREES ARE BEING LOST TO EMERALD ASH BORER DAMAGE.

Why Can′t Ontario PROTECT Its Ash Trees Against Emerald Ash Borer ?

 

 

In provinces like Ontario, Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION has led to Ash Trees DYING because of uncontrolled pests, such as the Emerald Ash Borer.

 

Because of its 2009 PROVINCIAL PROHIBITION, Ontario is a #@!!% PEST-INFESTED GARBAGE DUMP WITH DEAD TREES AND DANGEROUS GREEN SPACES.

 

The DEVASTATION of Ash Trees has been EXTENSIVE because there are NO valid economical alternatives to replace the PROHIBITED INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS.

 

In Ontario, TreeAge is an INSECTICIDE TREATMENT that was ARBITRARILY PROHIBITED, and consequently, MILLIONS OF TREES ARE DYING.

 

Without SAFE AND EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS, Ontario Municipalities are INCAPABLE OF PROVIDING ADEQUATE CONTROL of the Emerald Ash Borer, and are UNABLE TO KEEP THEIR ASH TREES ALIVE.

 

In Milwaukee, TreeAge is NOT A PROHIBITED INSECTICIDE TREATMENT, and NOT A SINGLE TREE IS DEAD.

 

When it comes to PESTICIDE BANS in jurisdictions like Ontario, Municipal Officials can learn a lot from the experience of those jurisdictions like Milwaukee that has SUCCEEDED IN CONTROLLING Emerald Ash Borer with SAFE AND EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS !

 

Some Ontario municipalities are BOWING TO THE INEVITABLE, and are simply REMOVING AND PLANTING TREES.

 

The DEVASTATION of Ontario’s Municipalities has also led to STUNNINGLY HIGH LOSSES IN PROPERTY VALUES.

Agrilus planipennis

 

 

Emerald Ash Borer, Agrilus planipennis, is a wood-boring pest that is HIGHLY DESTRUCTIVE to Ash Trees.

 

Emerald Ash Borer is as DESTRUCTIVE as was Chestnut Blight and Dutch Elm Disease.

 

Emerald Ash Borer has KILLED AT LEAST 50 TO 100 MILLION Ash Trees so far, and threatens to KILL MOST OF THE 7.5 BILLION Ash Trees throughout North America.

 

Emerald Ash Borer threatens the Fraxinus genus  ―  Black Ash and Green Ash Trees are preferred.

 

Emerald Ash Borer also attacks White Ash, but usually only after Black Ash and Green Ash Trees have been eliminated.

 

The Emerald Ash Borer has spread to 21 American States as well as Quebec and Ontario since it was discovered near Detroit in 2002, leaving tens of millions of dead trees in its wake.

 

It was first discovered in Canada in Windsor, Ontario, in 2002.

Using Insecticide Treatments, Or Listening To The Sound Of Chain Saws

 

 

In Milwaukee and surrounding municipalities, INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS must be re-applied every few years, creating an EXORBITANT COST for cash-conscious municipalities.

 

When MILLIONS OF TREES CAN BE LOST TO EMERALD ASH BORER DAMAGE, the DEVASTATION to any municipality will lead to STUNNINGLY EXORBITANT LOSSES IN PROPERTY VALUES and DETERIORATION IN STORM WATER RETENTION.

 

Outside of Milwaukee, Municipal Officials on the edges of the Emerald Ash Borer′s ever-expanding range FACE A VERY CLEAR CHOICE  ―

 

1.   LISTEN TO THE SOUND OF CHAIN SAWS while Municipal Employees CUT DOWN THE ASH TREES and replace them with other species  ―  a large one-time expense  ―  or  …

 

2.   Commit to spending lesser sums of money on SAFE AND EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS like TreeAge, perhaps for years.

 

According to Deb McCullough, a Michigan State University Forest Entomology Professor who helped test TreeAge before it went on the market  ―

 

There′s no reason for a landscape tree to die now if someone is willing to put some money into it.

 

( But ) some cities have a tough time allocating money from a municipal budget to protect trees when they′re trying to keep firemen and policemen on the job.

 

And in Ontario, it is IMPOSSIBLE for Municipal Officials to PROTECT TREES because of the 2009 PROVINCIAL PROHIBITION that RECKLESSLY AND ARBITRARILY PREVENTS MUNICIPALITIES FROM USING SAFE AND EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDES, like TreeAge.

 

In Ontario where Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION has been IMPOSED, Municipal Employees should simply be equipped with CHAIN SAWS.

 

If Ontario Municipalities truly want to save their Ash Trees, then they should have the PROVINCIAL PROHIBITION RESCINDED.

Management Program

 

 

In a typical municipality, the 4-year period, from year 8 through year 11 after infestation, will see 60 to 100 per cent of its Ash Trees DECLINE AND DIE.

 

It is common for all the Ash Trees in a single neighborhood to DECLINE AND DIE at the same time.

 

Implementation of the Management Program should begin with the REMOVAL OF WEAK AND DECLINING ASH TREES even if Emerald Ash Borer has not yet infested the municipality.

 

Once the Emerald Ash Borer infestation has been confirmed, INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS should begin IMMEDIATELY to SLOW DOWN the insect population build up.

Cities of Milwaukee & Chicago Prefer Safe And Effective Insecticide Treatments

 

 

Since 2009, in the City of Milwaukee, as well as Chicago, TreeAge has been used as a SAFE AND EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDE TREATMENT, thereby committing millions of dollars to the effort over the years.

 

Milwaukee reports that it HAS NOT LOST A SINGLE ASH TREE because of INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS.

 

Municipal Officials in both Milwaukee and Chicago said INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS allow them to replace Ash Trees with other species on their own schedule, and said the approach is cheaper than REMOVING all the trees at once.

 

Milwaukee, for example, spends about 950,000 DOLLARS per year on INSECTICIDE TREATMENT versus the 27,000,000 DOLLARS it would have cost to REMOVE the city′s 33,000 Ash Trees.

 

Meanwhile, residents continue enjoying the trees′ benefits, such as shade, sucking up storm water run-off, and boosting property values.

 

According to David Sivyer, Milwaukee′s Forestry Services Manager  ―

 

We′re totally in the driver′s seat, which is the envy of most communities that have ( the ash borer ).

 

About 150 Municipalities are currently using TreeAge as a SAFE AND EFFECTIVE INSECTICIDE TREATMENT.

 

Unfortunately, some Municipalities PREFER THE SOUND OF CHAIN SAWS.

City Of Madison Prefers Both Treatments And Chain Saws

 

 

In the City of Madison, Wisconsin, located outside of Milwaukee, Emerald Ash Borer was confirmed in November 2013, and Municipal Officials implemented a Hybrid Management Program that called for REMOVING trees in poor condition and using INSECTICIDE TREATMENTS for larger trees.

 

The Madison Management Program is expected to cost as much as 1,100,000 DOLLARS annually by 2019.

City Of Minneapolis Prefers The Sound Of Chain Saws

 

 

In the City of Minneapolis, Wisconsin, where the Emerald Ash Borer was discovered in 2010, Municipal Officials have proposed a Management Program calling for a new 1,100,00-DOLLAR TAX LEVY every year for eight years to REMOVE 40,000 Ash Trees and REPLANTING different species.

 

Minneapolis′ Park Board approved the first year of the levy in December 2013.

City Of La Crosse Prefers The Sound Of Chain Saws

 

 

In the City of La Crosse, Wisconsin, Municipal Officials have been grappling with the Emerald Ash Borer since 2012.

 

Ultimately, La Crosse decided to REMOVE their 6,000 Ash Trees and PLANT new species.

 

La Crosse anticipates that REMOVING AND PLANTING TREES will cost about 2,000,000 DOLLARS over four years.

 

In La Crosse, this Management Program is MORE ECONOMICAL when compared with an estimated 1,800,000 DOLLARS for INSECTICIDE TREATMENT for all 6,000 Ash Trees over six years.

 

According to Cinthia Johnson, La Crosse′s Parks And Forestry Coordinator  ―

 

Emerald Ash Borer is going to be in our community longer than six years.

 

You're looking at another six years and another six years.

 

With the removal and replacement over four years, we′re done.

City Of Boulder

 

 

In the City of Boulder, Colorado, Municipal Officials discovered the Emerald Ash Borer in September 2013, marking the bug′s farthest progress west.

 

City Forester Kathleen Alexander said Boulder is trying to determine the extent of the infestation.

 

Then, the city will have to make some hard decisions about whether to treat trees, remove them or both, she said  ―

 

Unfortunately, it′s expensive any way you look at it.

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED and RAPED by PROHIBITIONS against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape, and by other ACTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM.

 

We are living in the 9|11 Era of Anti Pesticide and Environmental Terrorism where at least ONE SUBVERSIVE ACT OF TERROR is perpetrated EVERY SINGLE DAY.

 

We are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI PESTICIDE TERRORISM where sound science is trumped by FAKE SCIENTISTS, JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE through FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOR  ―  scientific research PROVES that pest control products CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.

 

An informed public is better able to protect itself and its communities and businesses from so-called activists who are THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE ANY ADVICE about pest control products or the environment.

 

NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space industry, and the well-being of our communities.

 

NORAHG morally represents the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of people associated with turf and ornamental plant maintenance who are OPPOSED to Anti Pesticide PROHIBITION and the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT of somehow « saving » the environment.

 

http://wp.me/P1jq40-2bo

 

NORAHG is a NATIONAL NON-PROFIT NON-PARTISAN organization that does not accept money from corporations or governments or trade associations, and represents NO VESTED INTERESTS WHATSOEVER.

 

NORAHG is dedicated to reporting PESTICIDE FREE FAILURES, as well as the work of RESPECTED and HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.

 

http://wp.me/p1jq40-5DD

 

NORAHG responds on behalf of the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of the public that DOES NOT WANT PESTICIDE BANS, and SUPPORT those who work in the Professional Lawn Care Industry.

 

http://wp.me/P1jq40-2bo

 

NORAHG is opposed to Pesticide-Free jurisdictions that have DOOMED children to SUFFER INJURIES since Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION inevitably leads to public and residential green spaces that become DANGEROUS AND PEST-INFESTED GARBAGE DUMPS.

 

http://wp.me/P1jq40-44g

 

http://wp.me/P1jq40-4z3

 

NORAHG is concerned that, without pest control products, CHILDREN ARE AT HIGHER RISK OF SUFFERING INJURIES with the creation of HAZARDOUS SLIPPING AND TRIPPING CONDITIONS in sports turf.

 

http://wp.me/P1jq40-2ha

 

NORAHG pledges to deliver comprehensive reports that are worthy of peoples’ time and of peoples’ concern, reports that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet.

 

NORAHG was the brainchild of William H. Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991.  Mr. Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.

 

Force Of Nature was launched by NORAHG for CONTINUOUS transmission on the Internet on January 1st, 2009   ―   however, the VERY FIRST Stand-Alone FORCE OF NATURE Report was issued on September 19th, 2008.

 

On March 15th, 2010, Uncle Adolph independently launched The Pesticide Truths, an easy-to-use Web-Site that collects relevant reports of information right-off-the-press.

Pesticide Truths and Force Of Nature, in some ways, are like Google for everything concerning the SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES of Anti-Pesticide and Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists.
