Consider Something Different to Help Ash Trees

Is killing the answer?

With the Ash Trees and the Emerald Ash Borer it hasn’t worked yet.

This insect was a hitch-hiker from Asia, probably in some lumber.  It came into the Great Lakes and began spreading through Michigan to the east.  In just about 15 years, it’s found it’s way into New England states, and even to Colorado.  How could a little, tiny insect get that far?  In firewood.  People have moved firewood and spread the Emerald Ash Borer from town to town.

It is being blamed for the death of millions of Ash trees.  But what most people don’t know is that Read more…

2015 Ash tree and Emerald Ash Borer EcoPeace Treaty Progress and Results

Please click through the slide show above to see all of the various Ash tree and Emerald Ash Borer research sites as of 2015.  The slide show highlights a success. For more information, please go to the Success Declared portfolio at this webite.

Two of the Institute for Cooperative BioBalance’s five Hudson Valley area research sites for Ash Trees and the Emerald Ash Borer are within the “severe risk area” of the Mid-Hudson EAB Quarantine Boundary issued by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

The map above shows small red dots where the EAB insect has been verified.  The grey hashed area is the “severe risk area” which is within 5 miles of the core infested area.  It is well known that the insect moves by both flying with its own wings–which it can do up to several miles–but also by being moved in firewood.  This area is quarantined for the movement of firewood.

The Red Hook research site and the Omega Institute research site have not shown any evidence of Emerald Ash Borer presence from 2012 through 2015. The sites have received Cooperative BioBalance®, CoExistence Technologies®, and EcoPeace Treaty® bio-energy treatments for those 4 years. Thus, we are declaring success on those sites for 2015.

For more information about the whole project, please go to the Ash/EAB Summary portfolio at this website.

How EcoPeace Treaties Will Restore Natural Processes with Ash Trees

We feel that our EcoPeace Treaty approach will eventually result in the restoration of natural processes.  The first steps of the Cooperative BioBalance® and EcoPeace Treaty® techniques are to use intentional consciousness practices to improve the health of trees and to bioenergetically reconnect the ecosystem members.

When a tree becomes stressed or sick, it naturally attracts insects.

For example, healthier Ash trees are less likely to attract the insects.  Therefore, the insects will go to trees that are already in decline.  That is called “natural attrition”, and is a normal process in Nature.

When the trees and insects are bioenergetically interconnected and have forged their own EcoPeace Treaty, then the trees will regain their health and the insects won’t kill their food source.  When no longer threatened, the insects also do not have to over-reproduce in order to protect their survive.  All living Beings want to live.

Thus, an EcoPeace Treaty is the philosophy of LIVE AND LET LIVE in practice.

2014 Progress and Results with Ash trees and Emerald Ash Borer Research

First visits to the Ash and Emerald Ash Borer EcoPeace Treaty research sites in 2014 were in February, 2014.  After a harsh winter, the Ash trees were leafing out rather late.  Since trees make food for themselves in their leaves, leafing-out late puts a stress on the trees.  They must use up their stored resources until the leaves are unfurled and in food production.

The structure of an EcoPeace Treaty is an up-side-down triangle. The organisms at the top, which are usually at odds with each other, come into dynamic balance when the agreement is mediated by Dr. Jim Conroy.  Please see the triangle in the slide show above.

At the end of the season, the Ash trees were healthy and strong.  There was no sign of Ash Borer at any of the Hudson Valley or New Jersey sites.

On the right of the map, each dot represents an entire grove of Ash trees since there are more in the forested area.

Identifying Ash Trees

How do you know an Ash tree when you see one, even if it’s in winter when there are no leaves?

  • “Opposite” arrangement of branches and stems that go a bit upward and look like old-style tv antennae.
  • “Diamond” shapes in the light-colored bark.
  • Clusters of 5-7 leaflets, also arranged in “opposite” structure.
  • Often very tall and narrow trees in the forest.  In landscapes, they can be either very tall and narrow or shorter and full.
  • They tend to like gentle slopes, not steep grades. When growing on a slope, they  tend to have at least one very large visible root which supports them, often on the uphill side.

2013 CT Officials Hold EAB Informational Meeting

Dr. Jim Conroy and Basia Alexander attended a meeting held by Connecticut officials about the Emerald Ash Borer.

Officials in CT have reported finding the Emerald Ash Borer in many communities.  They point to people moving firewood as the cause of the insect coming into Connecticut from the west.  The insect originally entered the U.S. through the Great Lakes, probably in lumber from China, which is its original home.  Now the insect has spread (primarily by traveling in firewood) to the east.

Officials took arborists and others in CT to sites where the insect has been found.
