Ash die back, regrowth?

Recommended Posts

A self seeded ash had been growing at the side of our yard for a few years, got to about 15` tall, and about 2"dbh, last year we suspected it had ash die back, with a scar on the main stem. This year below the scar came into leaf normally, but above it was poor with some branches dead. I cut and burnt it this spring, but today just happened to notice some quite vigorous regrowth from its stump, if it was ash die back, will the regrowth be infected from the original stem?


Sorry if its been asked/answered before.

But know the spores are airbourne and have also  read infection severity/probability may be influenced  by the density of ash leaf litter in stands of ash. So even if original stem isn't infected or has overcome infection it likely will get re-infected again from  the spores from other trees.

Like Stere says, it won’t get infected from the main stem but will almost certainly still get infected anyway.
