That is an ash tree which has been infected by the Emerald Ash Borer — among over 150+ trees counted all over town, and that’s just on city property
The ash borer larvae live just under the bark and chew through the channels feeding the limbs of the tree causing them to die
This tree is trying to make a come back in to lower sections, I’m told it is seldom successful and the trees must be cut down
No ash wood is to be taken out of Illinois — Keep your Ash at home!
Slingshot tree south of town — huge dead sections covered the road after a storm
No idea what kind of tree this is/was
Bark is long gone, so no ID clues there
Linden tree which has suffered greatly from Japanese Beetle infestation
An Open floor plan 🙂
Deceased Ash in the background
Well, I know, but still…..
(Thanks Scooter for a new and interesting challenge, looking forward to the Virtual Arboretum)
