Hi greeneyes. Reporting from Southwest Ohio, Butler County.

Two things we note:
1. The Emerald Ash borer (originally from China) has killed an estimated 10 million ash trees in southern Ohio and northern Kentucky. I've lost six beautiful 100+ trees this year, with one survivor.
2. The Buckeye trees around here have no buckeye nuts this year. Well, not all are gone, perhaps only one or two per tree and a lot of trees completely devoid of nuts. Not sure the two events are related, but the trees are taking a beating.

On a brighter note, my last post asked for direction with spreading mint plant. Good news is we've hacked it down and contained the system. Thanks to all who provided direction.

So many unwelcome things from other countries. It’s really sad about your trees, but glad the thread was helpful for your mint issues.
