Ash Borer

Stuart Johnson
>A couple weeks ago the chat session topic was insect and disese control. There was an article in this morning's paper regarding the ash borer. According to the article 8 million ash trees have been killed or infested in Michigan since it was firt discovered just two years ago. All movement of firewood (our turning stuff) has been banned in 13 counties. The state of Ohio is setting up check point to prevent any firewood from coming into the state from Michigan.

I don't think we came up with anything new during the chat session other than be aware and careful. But, I think this drive home the point about what we could possibly do when we bring home blanks from Uncle Harry's firewood pile.
