    Many of us have lost ash trees to the Emerald Ash Borer, an ash tree-killing insect from Asia, identified in Ohio in 2003. The pest has since spread from the initial detection in near Toledo to nearly all other parts of the state. Last spring we had three ash trees taken down in our yard (near Cleveland).

    • Thanks for the good information about the borer in Ohio, Pat. Sorry for the loss of your ash trees.

    When the trees in our backyard came down, it was sad. They were a danger but I still miss all nature’s activity that centered around them.

  3. Sad as it is to lose a tree, there are few things more hopeful than the planting of one. I bet it fuels the Grandkid’s imaginations, Ruth. :)
