What is Emerald Ash Borer? Why can't I bring firewood from my home?
Emerald Ash Borer is an ash tree-killing insect that has affected
ash trees in various counties throughout Ohio, Michigan, and other parts
of the Midwest. As a result of the spread of this insect, several
counties have been placed under quarantine and firewood cannot be
transported from those counties. In an effort to reduce the chances of
the Emerald Ash Borer affecting our trees, Mohican State Park asks that
you to purchase your firewood locally, be it in Ashland County or other
bordering counties. Please go to
http://www.ohioagriculture.gov/eab/ for more information on Emerald
Ash Borer and a map of the quarantined counties.
