Just as we hit camping season, the restrictions on moving wood expands. Concerns over the expansion of the deadly Emerald Ash Borer has the Department of Environmental Conservation expanding the restricted zones around Central and Western New York.

Because the larvae of the Emerald Ash Borer can survive travelling long distances in firewood, logs, branches, and nursery stock; movement of wood from within the restricted zone to outside of it is prohibited.  The same is true of wood from outside the zones travelling the restricted area.  It’s believe the pest made it’s way into the US  from China in a shipment that contained wooden pallets travelling down the St. Lawrence River.
