Hello.

Do you have these problems with your Ash trees, because of the Emerald Ash Borer.

Ohio has lost probably a million ash trees due to ash borer.

I am sorry for everyone losing their beautiful ash trees.

We have a few on our farm, but they are mostly surrounded by larger trees in our shelter belts.

It will pain me to eventually lose them, but it is not nearly as painful as it is for the areas that are losing entire hillsides of ash trees.

No because they are almost all dead already from EAB.

I have one 18-20 footer in my yard that was lightly infected about five years ago but was able to bring it back by treating every spring. I am probably fighting a losing battle but for now it is working. I know this is impractical for larger or multiple trees. NE Ohio

Losing all of ours, some over 2' in diameter. Biggest issue is clean up when they fall across fences and trails. Not worth the mess of calling in loggers.

We were lucky and had our woods logged in 2004, before the Emerald Ash Borer got here. 70% of the board feet we sold was Ash. Which still left a lot of Ash trees now dead, standing, and slowly falling down. We had all the ones that could take out line fence dropped safely; the rest lose branches whenever the wind blows and fall down when they feel like it.

They might just all be fallen and rotted away before I die.

We have lost all ours over about 2-3" with half a dozen around the house I still need to take down. I had heard that NY had 900 million ash before EAB arrived.

We have quite a few ash in this area, most of which still seem healthy and going, there may be some small percentage that have died. our main tree in the woods are oak, all different varieties, we had a disease here about ten yrs ago that took out a bunch of black oak, I think it was, some areas hit harder then others.


All the really good ideas I've ever had came to me while I was milking a cow.

I have seen multiple dead or dying ash trees in the city, but our ash trees at the farm are still doing fine.

I assume there are many more vectors transporting and spreading EA borers in the city compared to our rural areas.

I'm in the same situation as RAH. They are pretty much gone here in SE Indiana. I actually had to move one of my deer stands because it was in an ash that died and it got to looking very bad. Just had one fall right next to my farm house and came within 10 feet of landing on it. It was probably 2 feet in diameter. Really sad to see them go.
