(UNDATED) - The Indiana Emerald Ash Borer Quarantine (312 IAC 18-3-18) has been officially repealed.

This means that movement of ash wood is no longer restricted in Indiana. Please be advised that the following restrictions still exist.

1. The DNR Firewood Rule that restricts movement of ALL firewood on DNR Properties (State Parks, State Forests, Nature Preserves, etc.) is still in force. Please see our Firewood website for more information.

2. The Indiana Thousand Cankers Disease of Walnut Quarantine prohibits the movement of walnut and ALL hardwood firewood from states where TCD have been found. Some states also have rules against moving Indiana walnut into their states.

3. While ash can now be moved to the surrounding states, the Federal EAB quarantine is still in place. Some states also have their own quarantines and rules that need to be followed.

We still encourage you to buy firewood locally and minimize wood movement. However, your local inspector can assist you in making sure you are in compliance with the current wood and firewood restrictions.

Second, view the EAB University with Bob Schutzki of Michigan State University, on "Characteristics of Trees Used to Replace Ash".

You will learn how this program links with efforts to remediate damage caused by invasive forest pests. Future talks include "Managing YOUR Local EAB Situation" by Purdue's Cliff Sadof and "How Tree Choice Can Cause the Next Invasive Species Disaster" by John Ball, South Dakota State University.
