The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) recently widened the regulated controlled emerald ash borer area. Joliette and D’Autray RMC are now within the controlled area.
The CFIA wishes to remind the public that it is prohibited to move any wood, branches, or tree residues of any species outside the regulated area.
Since the EBI landfill site is now located within the regulated zone, it will now be possible to receive tree residues from other zones.
Part of the insect pest order Coleopteran, the emerald ash borer is an invasive and destructive insect which attacks and kills all species of ash trees. To this day, the emerald ash borer has already wiped out millions of ash trees in North America.
To know more about problematic areas, how to identify the emerald ash borer, or to help prevent it from spreading, please consult the CFIA’s website.
