Sadly there is no stopping this. Most of the Ash trees in North America are doomed. This scourge first showed up in Michigan and Ontario 20 years ago. That region is almost devoid of Ash trees now. It is spreading across the nation rapidly now. Its just another lesson in why people need to be careful about the things they bring in from overseas.

Yes, the ash borer has created a major eyesore here in Michigan. There are wooded areas that looked full and lush when I was younger that are now filled with bare, dead ash trees in mid-Summer. It has had a DRAMATIC effect on how the rural areas of MI look, especially southern MI. I'm surprised people don't talk about it more, but then again most people don't pay close attention to nature. It has reached a point where the level of natural beauty in this state has been visibly reduced. It is sad to watch. And, believe it or not, all of the ash are not dead yet here. It's going to get uglier still.
