Ash Trees At Risk

At Risk: All North American Ash Trees


Range of ash in North America.

(US Forest Service)

The U.S. Forest Service estimates that there are 8 billion ash trees in United States’ rural forests. In Indiana, there are approximately 147 million ash trees in our forests and at least 2 million more in urban areas. 

All native North American ash trees (Fraxinus spp.) are vulnerable to attack by EAB.  If pesticides are not used, EAB kills 100% of the ash trees it attacks.
