Continue reading below

The destructive wood boring insect known as the emerald ash borer has been found in a Fairfield County park. The discovery will lead to a quarantine of firewood in Fairfield County, with no ash logs, ash materials, ash nursery stock, or hardwood firewood permitted to be trucked from the county. The News-Times of Danbury reported that Sherman’s first selectman, Clay Cope, said he has been informed about the ash borer’s presence and the town will cooperate to stop the spread of the insect. Thomas Worthley, a forester with the University of Connecticut Extension Service said efforts cannot halt the ash borer, but may slow its spread. The borer also has been found in Dutchess and Putnam counties in New York and Berkshire County in Massachusetts.
