Emerald ash borer (EAB; Agrilus planipennis) has killed millions of ash trees and threatens ash throughout North America, and long-term persistence of ash will depend on the potential for regeneration. We quantified ash demography, including mortality and regeneration, of Fraxinus americana (white ash), Fraxinus pennsylvanica (green ash), and Fraxinus nigra (black ash) in mixed hardwood forests near the epicenter of the EAB invasion in southeastern Michigan and throughout Ohio. Plots were… 
White ash (Fraxinus americana) survival in the core of the emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) invasion
TLDR
Despite catastrophic ash (Fraxinus spp.) mortality observed by the mid-2000s in the epicenter of the emerald ash borer (EAB) (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire) invasion in southeast Michigan, there is no clear trend in ash mortality in this region.
Condition of green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica) overstory and regeneration at three stages of the emerald ash borer invasion wave
TLDR
Canopy gaps resulting from current ash decline and mortality increased available photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) and sapling growth in Crest sites, but PAR was low in Core and Cu...
Downed Coarse Woody Debris Dynamics in Ash (Fraxinus spp.) Stands Invaded by Emerald Ash Borer (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire)
Emerald ash borer (EAB; Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire) has had major ecological impacts in forests of eastern North America. In 2008 and 2012, we characterized dynamics of downed coarse woody debris
Differential persistence of blue ash and white ash following emerald ash borer invasion
TLDR
This work inventoried live and dead blue ash and white ash in two southeastern Michigan woodlots several years after the A. planipennis invasion to assess their survival and found that nearly complete ash mortality has occurred.
Regeneration responses in black ash (Fraxinus nigra) wetlands: implications for forest diversification to address emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis)
Emerald ash borer (EAB) (Agrilus planipennis) has had an extensive impact across North America. It is currently present in Minnesota, USA but has not been observed in northern portions of the state
Community composition and structure had no effect on forest susceptibility to invasion by the emerald ash borer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)
TLDR
Stand composition data suggests that ash will be replaced by Quercus Linnaus (Fagaceae), Acer Linnaeus (Sapindaceae), and Tilia Linnaxus (Malvaceae); such vegetation changes will irreversibly alter the structure and function of these forests.
Potential Species Replacements for Black Ash (Fraxinus nigra) at the Confluence of Two Threats: Emerald Ash Borer and a Changing Climate
The emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis; EAB) is causing widespread mortality of ash (Fraxinus spp.) and climate change is altering habitats of tree species throughout large portions of North

Emerald Ash Borer (Agrilus planipennis) Density and Canopy Dieback in Three North American Ash Species
TLDR
Results indicate that surveys for A. planipennis indicate that this invasive pest would exhibit a preference for a particular North American ash species, and density increased by two- to fourfold in both species over a 3-year period.

TLDR
A second-growth hardwood forest containing both wet lowland and mesic upland sites in southeastern Michigan was studied, finding that elm will continue to exist as an important species, even if not a canopy dominant, in some types of hardwood communities.
