For Immediate Release: Dec 4, 2006
Wood-quarantine meetings slated for Dec. 11-14

Bans fight spread of emerald ash borer insect

Informational meetings on how to comply with recent state and federal quarantines on wood products to combat the spread of the emerald ash borer (EAB) insect will be conducted Dec. 11-14 at four different sites in southern Indiana.

Representatives of the DNR Division of Entomology and Plant Pathology, Division of Forestry, and the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) will be present to explain the various quarantines and compliance measures to members of affected businesses. Those needing to become compliant will be able to initiate and/or complete the compliance process at the meeting.

Although various levels of quarantine have been imposed by township and county by the state as the EAB is confirmed as being present, a federal quarantine over the entire states of Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Michigan that was announced Nov. 21 became effective Dec. 1.

Clifty Inn at Clifty Falls State Park near Madison will host the first meeting, Dec. 11. Other meetings will take place Dec. 12, at the Division of Reclamation Office in Jasonville; Dec. 13, at Phil Ettienne's Timber Harvest in St. Croix; and Dec. 14, at Spring Mill Inn in Spring Mill State Park near Mitchell. Each meeting has the same format and runs from 6 to 8 p.m.

There is no registration fee, nor are entrance fees to the state parks collected at this time of the year.

Indiana counties with EAB infestations include DeKalb, Allen, Porter, White, St. Joseph, LaGrange, Steuben, Randolph, Huntington, Hamilton, Marion and Adams.
