Emerald ash borer found in Beloit area

by

BELOIT, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin agriculture officials confirm the destructive emerald ash borer has been found in the Beloit area.

That city’s forestry crew identified an infested tree during a scheduled tree removal operation.

The borer was first found in the state in 2008 near West Bend.  It has been confirmed in trees in more than a dozen Wisconsin counties.

The pest has destroyed millions of ash trees since it was first detected in North America.

Rock County is already under a quarantine, with guidelines including all hardwood firewood and ash products like timber, pallets, mulch and trimmings.

Businesses are allowed to apply for exemptions.
