The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship announced a quarantine of 25 counties in Eastern Iowa to help prevent the spread of the Emerald Ash Borer.

"This regional quarantined is designed to help prevent the spread of this destructive insect while hopefully allowing businesses to continue to function," Northey said.  "This quarantine is established to make sure that any ash products that leave these counties do not spread the pest."

The counties included in the quarantine are: Winneshiek, Allamakee, Fayette, Clayton, Buchanan, Delaware, Dubuque, Linn, Jones, Jackson, Clinton, Johnson, Cedar, Scott, Keokuk, Washington, Muscatine, Louisa, Wapello, Jefferson, Henry, Des Moines, Davis, Van Buren, and Lee.

The regulated articles under the quarantine include EAB at any living state; entire ash trees; firewood of any hardwood species; any cut or fallen material of the ash; non-heat treated ash lumber with either bark or sapwood attached; and hardwood wood or bark chips larger than one inch in two dimension.
