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. :)
