Emerald Ash Borer Quarantine
It has been determined that the destructive insect pest known as the Emerald Ash Borer (Agrilus planipennis), an exotic invasive plant pest that is established in several other states, has been found in Alabama. This insect can be highly destructive to Alabama’s ash trees (Fraxinus species) and ash nursery stock. Therefore, it is in the best interest of Alabama’s citizens, agriculture, and silviculture that this quarantine be established to limit the pest’s human-assisted spread within the state.
