Emerald Ash Borer

In 2003, the Emerald Ash Borer was accidentally brought into Maryland.  The Maryland Department of Agriculture took aggressive action to eradicate the pest. Recently, the pest has reappeared in Prince Georges County, MD.   The  Department issued a Quarantine Order that prohibits anyone from moving ash trees or firewood in and out of the County.  Over the next two months, the Department of Natural Resources will survey the ash trees in the County. If you think you see what might be an Emerald Ash Borer, contact Maryland Department of Agriculture.
