Stressed Ash Tree
I live in the Trenton Ohio, and I have a tree Question.
I have in my backyard, what I beleive to be an White Ash Tree,
Over the last few years it has been stedly dieing, from branch line to
brance line, I beleive it may have been hit by Lightning a few years ago
but the bark has a Green Moss or mold looking substance over it, any
insight as to what is killing this, or could it be a combination of
things, the last living segment, has died a few days ago, and I need to
cut it down, this green looking mold was also on a couple of pine trees
that where in the yard as well, that had died level to level over a few
years, I had to cut them down a month ago.
if this mold is the colprute, will this or could this effect the soft
maple trees in my yard as well?
Sounds like ash decline.
