Will it kill all the ash trees?

It might. All species of ash (Fraxinus sp.) are susceptible to EAB and none have any natural resistance. There are over 2,000 ash trees in City rights-of-way and some 200+ in developed parks. Ash represents 25% of the total tree population in some areas of the city. In addition, ash is one of the most common tree covers in the bottomlands along the Cannon and Mississippi rivers, on the bluffs and in agricultural areas.
