NASHVILLE, Aug. 8 (UPI) -- A pair of scourges are threatening billions of dollars worth of ash and walnut trees, Tennessee agriculture officials say.

The emerald ash borer, a beetle, and thousand cankers disease, spread by another insect, threaten the trees, the Nashville Tennessean reported Sunday.

Half the trees on my property are walnut trees, guess I'll be looking into this a little further.

Yeah, I've got a lot of it as well. I'd like to know where it has shown up.

"Officials urged people not to move firewood from place to place..."

Seems like most people that buy firewood do move it from one place to another...
