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.

Nebraska Rapid Response Planning for Invasive Species - Draft (PDF | 0.99 MB) (Aug 14, 2012)
Nebraska Invasive Species Council.
Invasive species pose a significant environmental and economic threat to the ecosystems and communities of the Midwest region and beyond. While avoiding invasive species introductions is key, managers must be prepared to take action when prevention measures fail. This plan provides guidelines for responding to an invasive species incident quickly and effectively. Its foundation is Incident Command System, a standardized protocol that allows for a common response framework across agencies and jurisdictions. Additionally, this plan serves as a tool for developing species specific Rapid Response Plans.

Law to Help Address Nebraska's Invasive Species Issues (Apr 17, 2012)
Nebraska Fish and Game Association Forum.
Gov. Dave Heineman earlier this month signed LB 391 into law, giving the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission a tool to help control and prevent the spread of invasive species in the state. The legislation introduced by state Sen. Ken Schilz of Ogallala prohibits the possession, import, export, purchase, sale or transport of aquatic invasive species. The new law also created the Nebraska Invasive Species Council, which will serve as an advisory council for state invasive species policy. To view information about the legislation, visit the Nebraska Legislature website.
