Nebraskans Urged to Buy Firewood Instate, Stop Tree Killing Insects and Disease (Oct 30, 2012)

NTV abc News.

Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has not been found in Nebraska, but has been found in states surrounding Nebraska, including Iowa, Missouri and Kansas. Professional foresters believe it is spreading mainly by transfer of infested firewood along major highways. To help avoid the spread of EAB and other tree diseases, Nebraska residents needing to buy firewood this winter are being asked to purchase locally harvested wood to keep plant diseases and insects from spreading to the state. See Emerald Ash Borer information from Nebraska Department of Agriculture and if you suspect an EAB infestation in Nebraska.
