EAB has now been found in Boulder, Co., Atlanta, Ga. areas. How did they get there?

They keep letting importers bring in bugs and diseases and snakes we won't have anything but blue locust and sycamores and big snakes.

Not sure of the vector but it will be across the US, eventually. Anyone that likes camping and likes to do it in wooded areas can make a decision not to transport firewood. EAB is not the only tree pest that can be spread by transporting firewood, either.

Lots of campers bring fire wood from home. If you load up the back of your truck with wood and transport it several hundred miles on your vacation you not only transport the wood but potentially any unwelcome guests that may be hiding in it. Here in Wisconsin it is illegal to transport fire wood more than fifty miles for that reason , but many folks do it anyways.

Every place we've camped warns against bringing in outside wood. Yet I see it happening all the time.

Many if not all NE states ban bringing wood in from one county to another but it's mostly self administered. I suspect if some keep ignoring the regulations, other states will take a lesson from MA and just ban ALL wood not purchased at the campground.

How do we know it was transported by firewood? the small percentage of people that bring their own firewood are not the reason for the spread! it`s always easy to put the blame on the easy target!

Just last year our town lost thousands of trees due to the EAB. we are no where near a campground or any firewood vendors. it spreads how nature wants it to spread, no matter how much we think we can stop it!

You know how many times I`ve bought firewood at a campground that had EAB marks on it?

I've been to CGs that prohibit outside wood yet they don't sell it. I've been to CGs that prohibit outside wood so they can charge 3-4 times what you'd pay for it anywhere else. I've been to CGs that sell kindling that they refer to as firewood. I've been to CGs that have fire wood somewhere on the property but they don't deliver it. I've been to CGs that have run out of wood well before sunset. Not that I condone bringing your own firewood, but I can see why it happens.
