Emerald Ash Borer

Well - I didn't think it would happen so fast but the Emerald Ash borer is in our back yard :(

As you drive around Mason you can see hundreds of dead trees on the side of the road or highway.

And now my back yard. Out of all the Ash trees only 15 are being treated (about $100 per tree).

The only upside was that I thought 100% of our trees were Ash but it turns out only 90-95% of them are!

I took some pictures to remember our backyard at it's peak.
