Re: Emerald Ash Borer please read it could effect you
I have approximately 10 wooded acres of what use to be over 4500 elm and around 1000 ash along with several varieties of maple, oak, willow and blue spruce. I now have less than 100 elm and 200 ash thanks to the incompetence of our US Border and customs departments (read the history of Dutch Elm disease, it reads like an episode of the Simpsons). I spend approximately 4 hours every weekend during the better weather months chipping the ash and elm, so in some portions of the property it looks like a Oregon clear cut while the rest looks like a surreal post nuclear response landscape with every other tree lying against the next . . .
and your girlfriend too.
