There's been so much news about EAB (estimated 6 billion dead Ashes in NA), I didn't even realize there was an Oak problem.

Guess I know what I'll be planting seedlings of to replace the fallen ashes on the open parts of my property.

You can get Northern Red Oak seedlings for cheap from the PA Game Commission (25 for $12.50). I just checked their index, most species are already sold out, but not Northern Red Oak. They have Sawtooth Oak too, but that's non-native/invasive, they shouldn't even be selling it. I wish more people would only purchase/plant PA natives.

I've noticed conifer saplings have taken over here and are growing like weeds (at least for the past 2 springs). Hemlock, spruce and fir.

Not so much for hardwoods.

It's good that hemlocks are growing, they're being hit hard by the Hemlock woolly adelgid.
