The Missouri Department of Agriculture announced Friday that the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has quarantined ash wood and ash products and hardwood firewood in Wayne County, effective immediately, as part of an attempt to prevent the further spread of the emerald ash borer.

MDA and USDA confirmed the identification of the emerald ash borer in late July at a campground near Greenville in Wayne County - the first detection of the plant pest in Missouri. The emerald ash borer is an invasive wood boring pest that is responsible for the death and decline of more than 30 million ash trees across the U.S.
