eab found in st charles county mo

Well it is here. Guess sooner rather than later we will find out if this imidacloprid treatment will save my two white ash I am treating. I'll know I guess when those in the tree line die.

Tonight I was quizzing my friends. None really knew about any firewood transportation bans but one or two did know a billboard alongside the highway warning against it.

Well, here we go. Stupid arch grounds planting all Planetrees this time so they can have to replant when a green sycamore beetle pops up.

It was more interesting, or a damnation of the transportation of firewood that had me watching eab leapfrog StLouis and hit the KC area and Colorado.

It'll be interesting to see how well EAB survives in the South. The Ash populations down here are so scattered, you can travel a hundred miles and not see a single one. I'm thinking they'll travel the path of the rivers (where green and pop ash thrive) and not venture too far out from there into the pine forests. Only time will tell I suppose.

Think of the dollar amount of damage to our forests and lumber industry and all done in the name of cheap imported goods. Knowing that our pests are out there infecting other ecosystems don't take any of the sting out of it either.
