Na VIPeeps haven't had a meet in 2 years IIRC. It was Chicago area I believe and couldn't attend, there's been no discussion for a while. Matter of fact I'm about to go start a thread there now for 2019 lol

Not the first time Nockamixon was either partially or completely closed for reasons like this.

Yet the Valley and the immediate area still has a ton of great DG, everybody will be just fine

Sadly, no it won't. The Ash Borer is a relentless tragedy that will ultimately impact all of the trees. Any concentration of Ash trees in a park or course setting will be devastated.

I wonder happens to the ash borer when they finally run out of ash trees? Do they move on to oaks?..

There's already a couple less prominent species of tree that the EAB has success with. Russian Olive and white fringetree are both succeptible, though with lower success rates for the EAB.

I am sure this is true, but the proliferation of Russian Olive has exploded with the loss of Ash trees around here. The loss of this many trees has turned forested areas into meadow tracts of land, allowing for Russian Olive to thrive.

That's interesting and makes perfect sense.
You guys up north were hit first with the EAB and we're at least a handful of years behind. All I'm seeing around here is all the dead ash, nothing taking over after it's demise yet.

I recently read an article about the "next" tree killer but don't recall the name or even if it was a bug or a disease. What I do remember is that it can affect ALL hardwood trees. That's not what I want to hear.

Man am I sorry to hear this. I've tried to make a trip out to Nockamixon at least twice over the last few years, but weather or other factors intervened. Now I'm sorry to see that I may never get to play it.

News like this makes me appreciate the marvelous courses that I have been able to get to, even when I've had to jump through hoops to do it. You never know when an opportunity will be your last!
