Quarantines and Pests of Concern

Moving firewood and other regulated articles from quarantined areas is prohibited!

THE ENTIRE STATE OF KENTUCKY IS UNDER FEDERAL QUARANTINE BECAUSE OF EMERALD ASH BORER


In Kentucky, if you suspect that you have emerald ash borer (EAB); please contact your county cooperative extension agent for verification as well as possible treatment options.

Should you need the aid of an arborist for treatment or tree removal. We highly recommend that you contact certified arborists in your area for questions and pricing (also know that not all arborists are certified to do EAB treatments). Using a certified arborist allows you to have more information about them and their practices via the ISA. Certified arborists can be found at: www.isa-arbor.com/findArborist/findarborist.aspx
