New Invasive Species Regulations in Effect March 2015
New York Department of Environmental Conservation.
A regulation was adopted in 2014 that prohibits or regulates the possession, transport, importation, sale, purchase and introduction of select invasive species. The purpose of this regulation is to help control invasive species, a form of biological pollution, by reducing the introduction of new and spread of existing populations.

Hello Emerald Ash Borer, Goodbye Ash Trees
New York Invasive Species Clearinghouse.
Since its introduction into North America, emerald ash borer has spread to 20 states and two Canadian provinces. EAB was first confirmed in New York in June 2009 near Randolph, in western Cattaraugus County. The natural spread of EAB infestations in North America is about 2 miles per year, depending on the infestation intensity. However, the rapid spread of the beetle through North America is most likely due to the transport of infested firewood, ash nursery stock, unprocessed ash logs, and other ash products. In an effort to slow the continued spread of EAB, both Federal and State agencies have instituted quarantines of infested areas to regulate the transport of ash products. Learn more about the the emerald ash borer quarantine in New York State.
