The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is a highly destructive forest-pest is a wood-boring beetle that has been found in Quebec and part of Ontario, as well as throughout the eastern United States, and has now been found in Winnipeg.  The EAB attacks and kills all species of ash trees, and is most commonly spread through the movement of firewood.

The Department of Sustainable Development encourages Manitobans to help prevent the spread of EAB:

•    don’t move firewood,

•    burn firewood where it has been purchased,

•    plant a variety of tree species to increase diversity,

•    learn how to identify an ash tree, and

•    learn how to identify the signs and symptoms of EAB.
