Yes, EAB are resurgent.

EAB was first found here in 2004~2005.  It went through like a fire taking most trees but a few were untouched for some reason. This spring, after years of no new activity I noticed wood peckers had become active on the remaining ash. I stripped some bark and found live larvae.

The Emerald Ash Bore is still making its mark in southern, Michigan. Once aesthetic yard trees continue to be lost with large snags being left which will need the services of a tree service company. Hazel Park, MI May 2018.

I just received our latest "Digger" magazine from the Oregon Association of Nurseries.  EAB has arrived in Colorado.  

Member Update 10_02_13 - Oregon Association of Nurseries

It went into more depth with the printed article.  They expect it will make it's way to Oregon and are making changes here.  Recommendations are to remove Ash trees pre-emptively and Ash is no longer recommended as a street tree.

Guess a guy should stock up on axe handles.  :(

They found it recently in northern New Brunswick near Edmundston and in Madawaska, Maine. So it's here now.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

Are wood peckers the only natural enemy of the EAB? What did we do to mess up the balance? Is it an asian bug? Is anyone growing Ash indoors or from seed to try to save the species? When all the Ash is dead, won't the EAB be dead? What else will it eat to survive?

Went of a road trip from Ms. to Mich. this summer, hit the ash tree dead zone on interstate just north on the Tenn.Ky. line. Total tree kill from saplings on up along road and  up the hill sides.  Guess this crap is another benefit of our trade with china.  Anyway was surprised by the amount of walnut and butternut in the forest stands along the roadsides.  It is  somewhat rare in MS.   Anyway dead zone was all the way up to Motown and Cleveland etc.  Sick feeling realizing its coming my way.  The only comfort I got was touring the  distilleries in Ky.  Oh yea if you want to see some timber framing and woodwork tour Noah 's ark in KY.

I live in the middle of the bourbon district. Have family that worked in the industry. Grew up smelling the mash in the air. Its a sweet sweet memory.
Anyway, are you talking about the Ark Encounter? Ken Ham's ark? I'm not usually political, or religious, but that guy is a con artist. He's already stolen KY tax payers money, I would never support him. The guy thinks humans walked with Dinosaurs.... :D
