RECOMMENDATIONS ON PROTECTING ASH TREES
Treatment options to protect ash trees from the Emerald Ash Borer are available, but careful and thoughtful analysis is needed to circumvent spread of false information and excessive and needless use of insecticides. Forest, horticulture and insect specialists with ISU Extension have developed a guide that outlines management options against EAB. More: /news/2010/may/161402.htm

USDA has created a 'firewood issues' website that focuses on the broader issue of firewood movement, widening the focus from just EAB.  Check it out at http://www.aphis.usda.gov/newsroom/hot_issues/invasive_species&firewood/index.shtml
