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.

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.
PLEASE CLICK THROUGH THE SLIDE SHOW...... This is the printed utility flag that is used as an AGREED-UPON marker with the deer. No, we don't think that the deer read the flags. But, people come through the demonstration gardens and wonder why they are there.
April 26, 2014. Marker flags are in place and the EcoPeace Treaty has been renewed for the new year.
August 1, 2014. The flagged Hosta shows no sign of deer activity.
The demonstration gardens are very close to the forests' edge where the deer feed and live.
July 11, 2014. This year, the Hosta by the farmhouse was included in the EcoPeace Treaty.
The fruit tree orchard was again included in the EcoPeace Treaty.
August 20, 2014. Fruit is ripening and there is no deer activity.
August 20, 2014. Vegetables are ripening and no deer activity.
August 29, 2014. The demonstration gardens, which are so close to the forests' edge where the deer feed, show no signs of deer activity.

October 10, 2014. This bed of Hosta was included in the EcoPeace Treaty as a marked area. There was just a little deer activity on the edges.
October 22, 2014. The Hosta in front of the farmhouse shows only a few nibbles of deer activity.
October 15, 2014. The ground level raised beds in the "handicapped" demonstration garden show no sign of deer activity.
October 25, 2014. Demonstration gardens have been harvested by the people.
Results of 2014 Deer and Gardens EcoPeace Treaty Research
2014, the second year of research with mammals for Dr. Jim was generally a success. There were a few small breeches here and there — probably by young deer — but generally the people got to harvest ripe vegetables and fruit. Even the marked Hosta in front of the farmhouse was avoided. Dr. Conroy is working directly with the Deer Spirit.
This showed that the deer got what they needed in order to be in dynamic balance with the land: food in the forest, water in the stream, as well as both safety AND RESPECT from the responsible people on the land.

CLICK TO SEE SLIDE SHOW. . . . . . In early Spring, Dr. Jim Conroy visited the Apple orchard in Alford, MA, to begin the EcoPeace Treaty.
These buds for Apple Blossoms look good as of April 12, 2014. But, alas, just as they would be reaching the blossom stage, the Berkshire area of Massachusetts would have a late freeze. Most of the blossoms would be lost.
Later in the season, the trees would bear Robin's nests, but not apples.
Plenty of green leaves, but almost no apples.
2014 Apples in the Berkshires
These buds for Apple Blossoms look good as of April 12, 2014.
But, alas, just as they would be reaching the blossom stage, the Berkshire area of Massachusetts would have a late freeze. Most of the blossoms would be lost.
Without blossoms, there were very few apples this year anywhere in the Berkshires. So, Dr. Jim’s EcoPeace Treaty work with the Apple trees and their diseases went on hold.
