    Hmm... a grim picture. I've managed to keep mine alive, while most have gone. I only lost one of about ten.

    I miss the Green Ash so I planted one in my yard. Following the advice of a Michigan State University Arborist , I do a spring and fall drench with Dominion 2L (Imacloprid) based on the trunk diameter. This guy has been able to keep a healthy stand of Green Ash in the heart of EAB infestation for about 10 years now.

    If you have a well, consider switching to Safari basal trunk spray.

    I came home the other night and found a mature EAB on my garage door. He was quickly squished, I know it probably didn't do any good but it sure made me feel better.

    I have a well but it's far from my Ash tree, and at this point in it's life only requires about a 2 gallon drench.

    I should start a separate thread on this, but our big problem right now is Spotted Lantern Fly. A potentially much worse problem than EAB, coming to your neighborhood soon.

    Fantastic, as if I'm not already dealing with Oak Wilt, and Dutch Elm disease. I'm going to start planting Ficus trees.

    The SLF is wiping out a lot of trees in our area, even worse than the EAB. The fruit trees are being completely destroyed, but walnuts and maples are taking a huge hit, as well. Invest in insecticides.

    Ed, I agree we all need to be responsible, especially when it comes to groundwater. I'm also on a well. My neighbor had to drill a new well for whatever reason, and his well guy said our water that we're tapping comes from MANY miles away. It was at least tens if not 100 miles away.

    Anyway, if his explanation was correct, if I corrupt my soil here in Dayton, it's going to be the people in Cincinnati that pay the bill.
