The ash is a fairly robust tree that can have a lifespan of between 100 and 200 years. It supports climates in cold regions, and this is one of the reasons why you can find it in Canada.
Despite its longevity and robustness, there are several reasons why your oak trees may die on your property. Here are some of the most common.
If you planted your oak trees yourself a few years ago and they are dying, chances are they are not growing in the right environment. This leads to a shortening of their lifespan, making them sick, even dying.
Generally, ash trees prefer moist, rich soils. The surroundings of bodies of water as well as swamps are a place perfectly suited to their growth. If your soil is too dry, or too low in nutrients, it will struggle to grow healthy. Too salty soil can also affect its longevity.
In terms of climate, ash adapts quite well to temperate zones and cold climates. It does not fear the harsh Canadian winters. Therefore, the Canadian climate should not be the cause of his untimely death.
A tree that does not grow in a suitable environment, or that lacks maintenance is vulnerable to disease. Chalarose is one of the most dangerous diseases for the ash tree. It is a microscopic fungus that gradually grows in the tree and eventually kills it. Until today, Europe is the most affected by this disease, and Canada still seems spared.
As far as insects go, the emerald ash borer is the biggest threat to this kind of tree in Canada. It is an Asian beetle native to China, Japan and the Russian Far East. Detected for the first time in North America in 2002, it now ravages all varieties of ash, with the exception of blue ash which seems to resist the invader.
Adult borers lay their eggs in the bark of ash trees. Once hatched, the larvae burrow deep into the trunk to feed on the tree’s nutrients. He eventually died after a few years.
Ash trees generally have a lifespan of less than 200 years. It is, therefore, possible that they have reached their end of life and are beginning to die. This could be confirmed by specialists who perform analyzes on your ash trees.
If no disease or parasite has infected them, the most likely cause is their aging. Specialists can also determine the age of your ash trees to be more sure.
