2007; Kovacs et al. 2007). In Maine, documented episodes of Black Ash dieback show a relation to freezing and drought stress, with most documented episodes coinciding with the occurrence of severe soil frosts (Livingston and White 1997; Auclair et al. 2015. 2016b (draft). obs. 1891, The Midewiwin or 'Grand Medicine Society' of the Ojibwa, SI-BAE Annual Report #7. Published 28 April 2016. Smith, G., and J.E. EAB is an ash-dependent species that can complete its life cycle in all native Canadian ash species, but Black Ash appears to be the most susceptible of all North American hosts (Smith et al. Dispersal across the Great Lakes is likely less common because of the distances involved but is plausible (see Dispersal and Migration), while dispersal from the United States well into Canada is likely infrequent.

Criterion B (Small Distribution Range and Decline or Fluctuation): Does not meet criteria. Data provided by national and provincial forestry agencies indicate that in 2014 at least 600 km2 were treated with herbicide within the core range of Black Ash (NFD 2016). Black Ash is not closely related to any other North American native ashes (Wallander 2008, 2013), and is placed in section Fraxinus with European Ash (Fraxinus excelsior) and Narrow-leaved Ash (Fraxinus angustifolia) of Europe and Manchurian Ash (Fraxinus mandshurica) of eastern Asia (Wallander 2013). At the western edge of its range in southeastern Manitoba, Black Ash is the dominant canopy tree in high quality riparian forests that support at least seven provincially rare or uncommon understory species with eastern North American affinity (Kornelson and Hamel 2015). (2018) analysis does not allow definite prediction of Black Ash population loss. 2013. 1989. Black Ash can flower at about 30 to 40 years of age (Heinselman 1981) when stems reach 8 cm in diameter at breast height (Wright 1953). Can. Herbicide treatment is a common forest management practice throughout the Canadian range of Black Ash, with the exception of Quebec, where a provincial ban on forest herbicide use on public lands was enacted in 2001 (Kopra 2006). 2016.

Management for general conservation purposes provides minimal protection against the impacts of Emerald Ash Borer, as the intensive effort required to inoculate individual trees against the beetle is impractical for large scale application (Herms et al. Hale, and D.M. Nantel, P. pers. 9(3):142. The virus was initially identified in White Ash and named White Ash Mosaic Virus but has since been noted in Black Ash showing signs of dieback, both on trees with mild mosaic symptoms (irregularly mottled leaves) and on asymptomatic trees (Machado-Caballero et al. No fieldwork was carried out specifically for the preparation of this status report, because the limited field time permitted by available funding would not have substantially increased knowledge of the rangewide distribution, abundance or status in such a widespread species. Kashian (2016) suggests that pure ash stands may more effectively resist EAB than ash in the mixed hardwood stands that predominated in earlier studies (Kashian and Witter 2011; Burr and McCullough 2014; Klooster et al.

Redfern and Shirley 2002) and thus could have been introduced in Canada, but no direct comment on whether it is native to North America could be found. 1987. 2017); Quebec: Timber volume data (MFFPQ 2018) converted using a ratio of number of individuals over 10 cm diameter to volume derived from 181,932 Quebec forestry plots. Martin, A.C., H.S. (2008) summarized their results as suggesting a loss of heterozygosity due to inbreeding at the Oxford site and noted that there was no evidence to suggest limiting the supplementation of Nova Scotian subpopulations with individuals derived from New Brunswick subpopulations. The broader-winged fruits of Black Ash (vs. Red or White Ash) with their blunter proximal ends, may be trading water floatation potential against wind-dispersal potential. Under natural conditions, seeds thus generally take at least 1.5 years to germinate, only fully overcoming dormancy in the second spring after seed fall or later. Heinselman, M.L. Increased demand for renewable energy may drive further development of large hydroelectric dams within Black Ash range in the future (Canadian Hydropower Association 2017), but this is unlikely to affect a large portion of the species’ habitat. Individuals are generally polygamous (unisexual and bisexual flowers borne on the same tree), but occasionally unisexual. Wilson. 2012). The autecology of major tree species in the north central region of Ontario. Effects of climate on emerald ash borer mortality and the potential for ash survival in North America. Presumed or potentially native pathogens are here classified as limiting factors rather than threats, as is an incompletely explained phenomenon called “ash dieback”. 2000 to 2016), and for this report a few unverifiable occurrences reported from atypical habitats and regions for Black Ash have been presumed to represent European Ash.

Newsletter of the Michigan Entemological Society. In Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick, which contain the species’ core Canadian range, collective annual forest area harvested has averaged 334,000 ha in recent years (Natural Resources Canada 2013, 2014, 2015), which represents roughly 0.36% of Black Ash’s extent of occurrence, equating to 21.6% over 60 years (one generation); calculations beyond 60 years are complicated by second harvests of the same areas. Bill No. They indicated that there was a low chance that the regenerated ash would reach maturity as there is a presence of EAB within the area and documented a 19% infestation rate in the regenerating ash stems. After various research assistant positions, he worked from 2003 to 2005 as coordinator for plant survey and monitoring projects at the Bouctouche Dune Eco-centre, focusing on the rare coastal plants of New Brunswick’s Northumberland Coast, including several species at risk. Rangemaster Scoria Ash Black Igneous Granite Single Bowl Sink with Reversible Drainer & Waste Kit - 1000 x 500mm Rangemaster is a name that is synonymous with high quality kitchen sinks at an affordable price, and the Scoria range follows that ethos to the letter. Fraxinus nigra. Under the right conditions they can be quickly blown across open ice of lakes and rivers. Technical Report FS-216. Simpson et al. Potential impacts of Emerald Ash Borer biocontrol on ash health and recovery in southern Michigan. 2016). Most Nova Scotian Black Ash examined in a province-wide study in 2004 were reported as being in decline with no identified cause; 98% of closely monitored trees exhibited some dieback and average dieback per tree was ~17% across nine sites over two years (Hill-Forde 2004). 1968. Introductions of three parasitoid wasps from China began in the United States in 2007: the egg parasitoid Oobius agrili (Hymenoptera: Encyrtidae) and the larval parasitoids Tetrastichus planipennisi (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) and Spathius agrili (Hymenoptera: Braconidae).

Lombardero. 1987; USDA NRCS 2006; Wright and Rauscher 1990). 43(2):159-170. Over the last two centuries, Black Ash has reportedly become scarcer in calcareous mixed-wood swamps of the Maritime provinces, declining in frequency of occurrence from 6.5% in the early 1800s to less than 1% in 1993 (Loo and Ives 2003). 1992. 2016). U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station. 106, 1145–1154. Harper. Black Ash decline was also found to be positively correlated with stand age and tree diameters, which may simply be a result of cohort senescence (Palik et al. Cherokee Plants an early Cherokee ethnobotanical note. D’Amato, B.J. 2007. Ronald, W.G. Based solely on observed rates of spread, all Canadian Black Ash could be affected within one generation (60 years). 1987; White 2012; Wagner and Todd 2015) and can withstand moderate to heavy winter browsing (Erdmann et al. COSEWIC assessment and status report on the Black Ash Fraxinus nigra in Canada. Moore, J.E., A.B. Gramercy Publishing Company, NY.

Changes in two Minnesota forests during 14 years following catastrophic windthrow. (2000) also showed that in clearcut forested wetlands in Quebec, Black Ash can be replaced by pioneer hardwood species such as Trembling Aspen (Populus tremuloides) and White Birch (Betula papyrifera). Mortality caused by Emerald Ash Borer adds to substantial population decline due to habitat conversion in the past three generations (180 years, since 1837). and Saltgrass (Distichlis spicata) (Douglas 2008). 2013. 2014), nursery stock, untreated lumber and wood products (McCullough and Katovich 2004; Iverson et al. 13 pp. February 2017. Kopra, K. 2006. Even without additional management, the high-density planting of conifer seedlings in cut-over areas could impact Black Ash regeneration through competition. Ruthrauff. See Limiting Factors. Wickware. 2000. DOI: 10.1002/eco.1862. Populations peaked in the 1950s and late 1990s (estimated peak of ~150,000 individuals), with the most recent estimate being 112,000 individuals (NLDEC 2015). Black Ash dieback is widely reported but incompletely understood, and has been associated with drought, excessive soil moisture, winter root kill, late spring frosts, and air pollution (Tardif and Bergeron 1997; Ward et al. Kashian, D.M., L.S. 2018). Forest Pathology. No fieldwork was carried out specifically for the preparation of this status report, because the limited field time permitted by available funding would not have substantially increased knowledge of the range-wide distribution, abundance or status of such a widespread species. Assuming the 72% wetland loss applies to Black Ash habitat throughout the Great Lakes Plains, this would translate to 6.4% habitat loss in Canada (72% of the 8.9% of Canadian Black Ash range that is within the Great Lakes Plains). and D. Lachance (Eds). Halls (Eds.). comm. In: Potter, K.M. 2016. Ten additional Black Ash-associated arthropods have been identified by Wagner and Todd (2015) as being moderately to highly threatened by ash decline. 23(8):1566-1575. Floristic Synthesis of North America, Version 1.0. Black Ash (Figures 1 and 2) is a broadleaved hardwood tree reaching a height of 15 m to 27 m (Grimm 1962; Farrar 1995; GoBotany 2017; maximum 37 m, from Clayton, Iowa - American Forests 2012).

There is little documentation of the phenomenon in Canada, but it may be associated with poor tree health and growth observed in the Maritimes described above, and the proximity of dieback in New York and Maine to the international border suggests that it could be occurring in adjacent Ontario and Quebec. Seeds exhibit deep physiological dormancy, with embryos that are immature when the seed is shed. 72(4):305-312. Journal of Wildlife Management. NA-PR-02-04.
