Reseeding Ash?
« on: August 25, 2017, 09:25:17 am »
Hello, When EAB went through the area several years ago they didnt miss one single tree in my woods. I got most of them cut down before the wood rotted. Now at several (but not nearly all) of the stumps there are dozens of live shoots. None of the trees that I didnt get cut have any shoots on them.  I assume it would be a good thing to leave the stumps alone that have shoots so they can  grow and re seed?  Should I try to thin them or just let ma nature do her thing? Thanks!

Curious about this too. EAB wiped-out most here, including a few ash on my grounds. I hope to replant some more, and some walnuts to help my kids pay off the debt I'll leave them! LOL:D 8) :-*

Nothing wrong with letting them grow.  There are still some old Chestnut stumps that put up shoots.

My opinion is things will eventually reach an equilibrium or perhaps resistant trees may be found for eventual recolonization.
