Well, the dreaded Emerald Ash Borer has made it into our state. As a result, Wayne County is now under a Federal Quarantine. If you bring firewood into Wayne County, you must not leave with it. It must be burned completely. Here is a snippet from the Missouri DNR website....

"On Aug. 8, 2008, the U.S. Department of Agriculture issued a federal quarantine for Wayne County. This quarantine restricted the movement of ash wood, ash products and hardwood firewood for Wayne County. A state quarantine for Wayne County was issued on Aug. 28, 2008. "

The Emerald Ash Borer insect was discovered in traps at the Old Greenville Recreational Area (one of my favorites). I am sure the days of transporting firewood anywhere in Missouri are now numbered.

Please see the MODNR site http://www.icampmo.comfor more details about this terrible news.

Sorry to hear the news but it's a small price to pay if we can save our forests.
