Check out this youtube video that Angie's list recently posted on twitter. They offer some good recommendations on having your trees inspected. We always suggest getting 2-3 estimates and verifying the companies current insurance policy is critical! Nobody wants damage to occur on their property but occasionally this can happen. If it does, you want to be certain that the company you have hired will take care of their responsibilities.

-Every year EAB grows by 5000%
-Trees are dead within 2-5 years of infestation
-Early signs, (2-3 years) are very difficult to detect even by professionals
-90% of the beetles life cycle is inside the wood under the bark
-Trees with low density infestation have virtually NO symptoms
-It spreads exponentially. One mating pair will develop 8.1 million eggs in 4 years
**According to Purdue researchers: 1st year 1% of trees dead. 2nd year 2% of trees dead. 3rd year 4% dead. 4th year 8% dead. (This is the stage when people begin to notice an infestation problem when about 1/10 ash are dead.) 5th year 16% dead. 6th year 32% dead. 7th year 64% dead. 8th year 100% dead ash trees. So in essence, once signs are seen, all untreated ash trees will be dead in the area within 4 years.
We will have another post following up with Q and A on EAB. An excellent resource concerning EAB is the Purdue website: http://extension.entm.purdue.edu/EAB/
As always, contact us with any questions you may have.
