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 hear that some communities and homeowners have protected their favorite adult ash trees through annual treatments.  Details?
