Bad news.  EAB has reemerged after probably a 5~6 year absence. That's a live larva I found this morning.  Guess that's the answer to my question :(

New info for an old thread.

Jennifer Koch, and other researchers with the U.S. Forest Service, has spent the last several years studying what are known as lingering ash trees that have fared much better against the emerald ash borer. 

Koch says theyve identified at least two reasons why. Lingering ash seem to attract fewer hungry adult ash borers, which means theyre less likely to become homes to eggs. And when eggs do hatch on lingering ash trees, they tend to be smaller and have a higher mortality rate.

They have also collected a lot of samples from "lingering" trees for cloning and cross breeding.  Could be decades before real data is available, but this is positive news for those in Ash country.
Lucas 6-13+slabber, Mr. Sawmill bandmill, orange chainsaws, JD SSL, Case Backhoe, farm tractors, trailers, and 150ish acres of trees.  Fledgling woodshop with CNC router, laser engraver, Woodmaster 712, and a Berlin 108 moulder (project).  Oh, and a lovely (patient) wife and four offbearers.

Just read about the cottony ash psyllid looks like its something else to help kill off all the ash trees....if its not one thing its another. Now I wonder if there will be any ash trees left for our great grand kids.
