What’s At Stake?

State Tree: Buckeye – a tree the beetle attacks!

Nursery Stock: Damage to the state’s multi‐billion dollar nursery industry.

Hardwood Forests: Eastern and southern regions are blanketed in hardwood forests, and an estimated 300 to 400 million board feet are harvested each year.

Maple Trees: An estimated 7 billion board feet of maple wood alone currently in Ohio, plus adversely affecting maple sugar processors.
