Wednesday March 7th 2018

Canada has expanded its Emerald ash borer (EAB) regulated area in Quebec to the Maine and New Hampshire United States’ borders. Some Canadian mills may be advertising their ability to accept US derived ash year round. Please be aware that the United States EAB quarantine and movement restrictions have not changed. The United States has emerald ash borer regulations that restrict transport of ash logs.It is illegal to move regulated ash logs harvested within an emerald ash borer quarantine area through a non-EAB quarantine area (Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire’s non-quarantined counties) during the flight period (May 1 – September 30). Please see map.
