Save Our Ash Coalition goal is to provide residents of Arlington Heights, IL with information to encourage them to treat their ash trees.

With spring now here, the Save Our Ash Coalition has launched a new comprehensive and informational website, This website provides a communication link to all of the other residents of the Village of Arlington Heights (VAH), especially those who have not yet treated their ash trees against the emerald ash borer (EAB). Once the VAH reinstituted the 50/50 People’s Choice Program through October 31, 2016, the Coalition’s largest goal is to motivate the residents of untreated ash trees into action. There are currently over 8,800 ash trees that are still untreated in Arlington Heights. Unfortunately, about 2,300 ash trees in the village are already EAB causalities as of the end of 2013.

The Save Our Ash Coalition website shares the Top 10 reasons to treat the ash trees as well and summarizes the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). The Decision Factors Tab contains the value of mature ash trees along with the VAH statistical information on all ash trees plus the treatment results. Under the Success Stories Tab each of the neighborhoods that are part of the Coalition wrote their successes stories and the compelling reasons to treat the ash tree. Since much of the EAB and ash tree data can be found in other websites, under the Links Tab we included the links to newspaper articles, home owner associations’ websites and the primary VAH and governmental websites. One homeowner association even recorded their information sessions — available in a video/pictures section. To amplify the positive impact the mature ash trees has in most neighborhoods, pictures of canopy-lined streets are also shown the video/pictures section.

The Save Our Ash Coalition was formed in 2013 when residents in five Village of Arlington Heights neighborhoods (Arlington Terrace, Heritage Park, Northgate, Northgate Five and Surrey Ridge West) realized that the successes they had achieved in treating their ash trees from 2011 through 2013 could be extended to other neighborhoods of Arlington Heights. The coalitions goal is to help get the remaining ash trees in the Village of Arlington Heights treated and potentially saved. The coalition is not willing to give up to the EAB and lose our beautiful, mature ash trees without a fight.

Arlington Terrace consists of 282 homes located North of Hersey High School. We have 481 parkway trees, 245 of which are ash trees.

The Heritage Park subdivision in southern Arlington Heights has an overwhelming percentage of Ash trees. The Heritage Park neighborhood started treating the 41 Ash trees on their street back in the spring of 2011. All of the trees in treated area are alive while trees in the neighboring area have died.

In the Northgate subdivision, near Hintz Road from Arlington Heights Road to east of Windsor treated 450 of the 700 ash trees in the Northgate subdivision treated 450 trees, and only one has been taken down or is scheduled to be taken down because of EAB.

In the Northgate Phase 5 subdivision near the 2600 block of North Forrest Lane, none of the 37 Ash trees has suffered significant damage.

In the Surrey Ridge West subdivision near Arlington Lakes Golf Course, 103 ash trees of a total of 412 Ash trees were treated. Not a single Ash tree has been taken down since treatment began in 2012.
