My somewhat unwarranted impression is that once EAB has done it’s damage, it moves on. This brings up a question for any wood harvester, in terms of dragging the pest onto their own property, within legal county or state-wide quarantine limits. I have a friend who’s property has been completely devastated by EAB. Meanwhile, I’ve been treating my trees, and have been holding the pest at bay with pretty good success. So, if I bring several cords of dead ash from his property to mine, what are the chances I’m going to be hauling home a bunch of borers? Yes, I realize they’re already all around me, but at the same time, I would like to avoid bringing home hundreds or thousands of these pests, and stacking them directly under my own ash trees. Insecticides can be effective, on my mostlty-healthy trees, but only within some reasonable limits. Has anyone seen published data indicating how many years dead an ash tree should be, before it’s considered borer-free?
