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.
