Habitat loss and alteration of wet areas is likely the most prevalent threat for Wisqoq at present in Nova Scotia. Historical threats may have included over-harvest for cooperage (wooden hoops for barrel making). Other current threats may include selective harvest of mature Wisqoq trees for crafts, transplanting trees from non-native stock and die back. Although not yet documented in Nova Scotia, serious future threat for all ash species exists from the exotic beetle, the Emerald Ash Borer, which is spreading quickly in Ontario and Quebec and severely decimating populations of ash in its path.
