I have four green ash and three white ash trees I planted at the back of my property a decade ago, I'm hoping they'll survive since ash trees aren't all that common around here. EAB would really have to have good radar to find them since my property is surrounded by pine plantation.

Regarding American elm, it seems like most of the DED resistant cultivars are from up north, I haven't found a single southern cultivar. They say the Princeton elm is good down to zone 9, but I find it hard to believe a tree from Connecticut would thrive down here.

that really sucks. this country is going to lose billions of ash trees, unfortunately. they are threatened with extinction, that's how bad it is.

the first time i saw an affected tree was outside detroit in around 2004. i never dreamed it would spread nationwide.
