Emerald Ash Borer in Sullivan County

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has discovered emerald ash borer in Sullivan County, PA.

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture discovered emerald ash borer in Sullivan County, Pennsylvania in July 2011.

As the insect spreads our ash trees are in definite jeopardy. The insect attacks have been 100% fatal on all species of ash. Please don't move firewood and encourage your friends and neighbors not to move fire wood. The insect will continue to spread but by not moving firewood we hope the spread can be slowed. If you think you have discovered emerald ash borer on your property or you area please contact your local Penn State Extension office, Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry office or regional office of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
