The Emerald Ash Borer is the likely culprit causing the demise of this and all of the green ash trees where we live. There are too many of them to cut down and their brittle dead limbs crash down all over the place. At least their skeletons are sometimes nice to photograph. Also, young green ashes continue to grow but who knows whether the insects will let them grow as old as all of these beauties did.
