Haven't seen any white faced hornet nests this year. Stepped on a yellow jacket nest though. They let me know of their presence.  ;D

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

I have a apple tree out back that looks exactly like that ash tree .I hope it does not kill it as it had enough apples this year for some apple bread and sauce.

From what I have noticed since taking those photos on subsequent tree finds, it always seems that they pick a tree that has had some sort of trauma.  The mountain ash pictured, it had been shot with a rifle by one of my nephews and we had it staked and tied to try and save it as the trunk had such a hole and crack in it. The last few trees I found up to the cabin looked like they had big freeze cracks in them where the trunk was split open.  Maybe take a look at your apple tree and see if you see any prior issues. It would be interesting to note.

Looks like your dead on Jeff this tree has been clipped a couple of times by a snowplow and two or three years ago one of the bigger limbs broke off from to much weight.

Like Jeff said, and that's often the way many insects choose their "victims".  ;D
