    They look like they were in your area. Dutch Elm Disease took them out in the '60s. They might not have been as common as they were here. Massive amounts.

    I bet theyll add a zero behind that number this year. Sad. I love ash flooring. Wish thhe timing was right here with the removals and construction of our home.

    Believe it or not in spite of the EAB the stuff appears to be regenerating .I've got some saplings that are 10-12 feet high and a zillion little bitty ones .Of course it will take about 100 years before they ever get as large as they once were .Ash were once twenty percent of all the trees in Ohio .

    Wow, Al, that's great news! I'm assuming this is after EAB wiped them out? Makes you wonder how they managed to regenerate like that. Do you think the ones that are growing now will have some sort of resistance to EAB? Thanks.

    Some claim two things .One is the catlets or whatever they call the seeds could lay dormant for years until conditions were right for germination . In the conditions with the thick canopy they would have had a hard time to get enough sun light . This most likely is for the zillions of little saplings that are everywhere now .
    The larger saplings it was presumed because they were so small they could not provide enough inner bark to feed the EAB larva .In a month or so when they leaf out I'll get some pictures .
