Emerald Ash Borer
Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is against transporting firewood in or out of the state.
The Emerald Ash Borer has been found in three additional Connecticut towns.
Massachusetts officials said Thursday they have declared the state’s westernmost county a quarantine zone, beginning March 1, to help contain an invasive beetle that’s killed millions of ash trees nationwide.
The emerald ash borer, the invasive species from Asia first found in the United States in 2002, and identified in Connecticut earlier this summer, has now spread to Massachusetts.
For the first time the emerald ash borer has been found in Connecticut.
Connecticut officials are unveiling a new weapon in the fight against an invasive bug that targets ash trees.
