Emerald ash borer may be in Haliburton County, ON

The emerald ash borer, an invasive species of insect that spreads quickly, killing ash trees, may be in Haliburton County.

“Durham Region is the closest area that is known to have emerald ash borer,” county forest conservation bylaw officer James Rogers told Haliburton County councillors at their June 26 meeting.

This means that certain prohibitions, such as the transport of firewood out of the region, have been put into place.
