Just to let you know, you don't have to totaly waste an infected tree.  Here in Michigan there is a company called Last Chance Logs to Lumber.  They have permission from the state to saw the logs as long as the outer 2 inches are peeled and properly disposed of.  They are keeping thousands of board feet of perfectly good Ash out of the fireplace and in this case a wood fired electricity plant.  If anyone in in the Detroit MI area and wants to save some of their Ash for boards they can contact this company.  I have 1 tree and my neighbor has a second (whicl looks like it is infected).  My tree is estimated to have about 600 board feet of usable wood.  It only costs about 40 cents to have it milled.  Not bad.  I noticed they are listed in the Find-A-Sawyer function on this board if anyone is interested.  I also have their phone number.

Regards

Tim

I personally appreciate the friendship with you Jeff and all the others I have had the pleasure of meeting on this Fourm.  You sent me in the right direction Jeff and since than I have made it all the way to the Govs desk.  Ive never been to so many meetings in my entire life. I have DEFINATELY learned more than I care to admit about the " wheels of government" I have and will continue to approach the people I come in contact with in regards to helping sponser this fourm. The Urban and Community Forestry section of the DNR and Last Chance Logs to Lumber are working together towards an end result of making Michigan a leader in the reclaiming and recycling of Urban Natural Resources. Thanks again Jeff

Ron:

I've seen the odd golden Buprestid and metalic green colored one once in awhile. But, these buggers do make large bore holes coming and going from the wood. Oval hole going in (flat-headed borer) and out. They will certainly hit white pine fast in late spring, early summer. I've seen them in dead hardwood boles I chopped up for firewood for my lean too's in the bush. I didn't cook'm over the open fire though. Eat them raw like on 'Fear Factor' , just like corn with a tail twitchin.  ;)

regards   ;D

Currently the state and the feds are clear cutting all ash around 2 infestations West and South of Lansing Michigan. I hate to admit to pessemism, but Most of the locals I've talked to have little hope of eradicating these bugs. As the son of a MSU entomologist, I can only attest to how difficult it is to control an insect of which little is known about their life cycle. My dad studied flies, and let me tell you, there are a lot of strange and mysterious habits these little critters have. For instance, one species is found at the top of the highest point of the surrounding topography for 2 hours in the hotest period of the day. Usually on the top of the highest tree. Then they disperse for the rest of the day. You have to concider that 1 or 2 beetles could fly outside the containment area. How about 1 or 2 hitching a ride on a car. It's depressing to think about. I hope some chemical warfare is found to be effective in eradicating these bugs. As much as I dislike chemical controls, it seems like the best compromise.

Yeah a friend of mine researches best management practices for the southern pine beetle at VT, he's a research associate there. The bug is a major best in pine plantations. I was down to see its works in stands in NC and TN. They work fast and folks were trying to harvest the 30 year old plantations ahead of it. We were on some Bowater limits sampling stands in 2001 (my friend was rather). Hey!, I did hold the D-tape.  ;)

cheers

Ok guys, here's the deal. I found the article, but I can't get to it.
The only way I could find it was through a search. I clicked on the article link the search showed and no go. So I did a search for the name of the article and of course, it don't exist.  :-/ ::)

I guess you could order a back issue if you really want to.
Wait maybe Jeff has an idea, oh Jeff ?????????
It's the Feb. 6 issue of the Detroit Free Press ( freep.com ) and the article is: Canada cuts ash trees in borer fight.

Or does anyone have it laying around?

I forgot to post this the other day, but I thought it would make a good example of what just one incident can lead to.
