I'm hoping that we are far enough north to slow the spread. Maybe wishful thinking but one can always hope.

I believe Michigan was one of the first states to have a problem with them. Are you further north than that?

I had to treat both of my Ash...with a chain saw. They were the prettiest trees we had too.

 

We now have some Chinese beetle attacking out maples and a few other trees. I have a coworker who lost 3 or 4 maples in his yard because of them. Bad part with these beetles, they take 5-7 years to kill a tree unlike a year for the ash borers so by the time the tree shows the signs, it's usually too late.

I wish they would turn the dead Ash into lumber instead of chips. I like it for furniture. The heat treatment should kill any grubs.
