Is your house made out of Ash?
Tell him it has the epas blessing and that you are getting a tax credit for it
The Emerald Ash Bore Beetle only attacks Green, White, and Black Ash
I've been burning it for 5 years. The standing dead make great firewood. Once the tree is dead the borers are long gone.
I wish we could probagate that information, so we could get all the ash for ourselves.
The fire in your stove will kill any eggs or grubs that are in the wood. Tell your neighbor thanks fo the warning but your extermination process is more effective than the governments "30 mile no hauling" ban in stopping the spread of the AEB.
I'll be burning mostly green ash in my first year burning wood. Cut down another ash yesterday, ash bore killed it years ago. I have 3 more HUGE ash trees to cut down this fall. Ash bore got them last year. Nice thing about cutting up these trees is having no leaves to deal with. Most the small branches have fallen off. I hate to see these beautiful giants go, but at least the ash bore makes my targets very clear in this big woods.

That's funny! lol
If this guy was right there would be a lot of us here that would be in deep trouble for sure. For example, we have about 16 - 18 cords of it all cut, stacked and split ready to burn.
