March 27: Emerald Ash Borer Awareness Campaign Launched


The government launched a new forest invasive species awareness campaign aimed at the emerald ash borer. Firewood shouldn’t be moved from one area to another because it can transport pests such as the emerald ash borer, a highly invasive and destructive insect responsible for the destruction of millions of ash trees in ON, QC and the US. As its name suggests, the emerald ash borer is a shiny green colour and the larvae live under the bark of ash trees or firewood. Once infected, a tree can die in as little as one year.
