In 🇨🇦 🇺🇸 🇲🇽 North America and 🇪🇺 Europe, EAB has killed or is killing all native ash trees (see list at bottom of this page) with stem diameter over 2½ cm (1 in) — EAB females do not like stems smaller than this for laying their eggs.  This means any surviving trees are probably shorter than a basketball hoop.

Although we know some homeowners, who for over a decade, protect their six adult ash trees through annual treatments.  And on a larger scale, we have heard that some communities do the same.  We have no details on this treatment, but we could find out.

And our local tribe is growing out thousands of ◼︎ black ash  Fraxinus nigra 🌱︎ seedlings.  We have no details on what the tribe plans to do with these seedlings, nor why they think they will survive, but we could find out.
