Ulster firewood infested by ash borers

Jul 25, 2014 8:37 am
Julia Reischel reports in The Watershed Post that someone has been selling firewood in the Ulster County infested with emerald ash borers, the destructive beetle that is destroying ash trees in New York, according to a press release issued by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. DEC spokesperson Charsleissa King declined to identify the firewood supplier who they caught from a tip. "We are not naming the dealer at this time," she said in a written statement about the Olive-based offender. The entire Catskills region is under an emerald ash borer quarantine, and the bugs have been found previously in Ulster and Greene counties. The quarantine prohibits moving infested firewood or logs from the place where they were found. Violators can be fined. Read the full story in The Watershed Post.
