Lemme get this straight: 168 grand to plant trees? Ummm...are these not wooded areas?

Ummm...dude? Woodlands are self-replicating!

If you cut down the dead trees, new ones will eventually fill in those spaces. That's how a woods works!

By the figures listed here, it works out to $254 per tree! I'll take that contract!

More nonsense from the feds...

Good idea. Better to spend money replacing trees than trying to enforce quarantines that don't work.

Umm...dude, they're trying to CHANGE THE SPECIES COMPOSITION to something that's not ash and won't get eaten by the borers. Hence the bald cypress and so forth.

Second, it's parkland, which means there are people stomping over all the regeneration. So, they've got to plant small saplings.

It is possible that your trees may have been killed by the native ash borer, called the "banded ash borer" or lilac ash borer. It typically only attacks a small percentage of trees, usualyl stressed trees. Whereas the Asian emerald ash borer kills like 98% of large healthy trees.
