I live a few miles from the epicenter of this invasion. The spotted lantern fly came in with shipments of rocks from China to Rolling Rock Quarry in Berks County PA. Iím amazed how far they have spread in the few short years theyíve been here.

Iím even more amazed that itís cost-effective to import rocks from China.


Eh...wot?

Ash is all dead here. Most have been cut and burned. I still have a few standing dead but not for long. Whenever you go camping, never transport fire wood to or from your area. This may transport things like Emerald Ash Borer. We have lost a huge amount of timber to them in our county alone.

Tree of heaven and sumac are two different animals but look a whole lot alike. Sumac is native and Tree of heaven is an invasive species from Asia. So good riddance to Tree of heaven but the spotted lanternfly wonít spot there.

I lost about 350 ash trees to the emerald ash borers on my farm. I have a few smaller, sapling ash trees left, but I doubt they will make it to adulthood.

I ran the fastest I have in years, a few days ago, when I was clearing the ash branches from my Mother's driveway, that fell during a windstorm, so I could drive up. The 40 some inch diameter ash, that dropped most of the branches made a loud cracking noise and I thought it was going to smash me. Many of the branches fell and impaled the ground and were standing up like fence posts. She had 4 40 some inch diameter ash trees fall over.

I don't have any tree of heaven trees, but I do have around 20 apple trees and a grape arbor that the new pest can kill.

Growing up, most people I knew called tree of heaven stinkwood. We would brake them off at the root ball, by rapidly pulling them back and forth. Some were well over 30 foot tall. It took 4 to 6 kids to pull over a big one. The stinkwood trees would quickly regrow. As kids we used them to build a lot of forts, cabins and used stinkwood as firewood.

Customs needs to inspect imports much better than they do.

Nearly impossible to find an ash tree that is not already dead around here. I lost a couple hundred. It's good firewood but you have to get it cut fast, before it rots.

Be glad you don't have those tree of heaven...just another Chinese import and is a big glorified woody weed and about the only thing worse around here is bamboo!

If it dies after killing off all the tree-of-heaven that'd be ok. They're nothing but an invasive crap "tree". If/when it goes after native species that's a different story
