Emerald Ash Borer on the way

Area forests, including the trees around my own house, are going to change a lot with the 'imminent' arrival of the Emerald Ash Borer:

Though discovered in New York state, the bugs haven't been found in Tompkins County, according to Whitmore. "It will get here, there's no question about that, and we're not stopping it," he said.

I'm curious about the blue ash trees that are supposedly more resistant, and I may try planting them as replacement trees when it's time.
