Emerald ash borer found in Strafford County
Quarantine expands; public comment session open until Sept. 30
The emerald ash borer (EAB) was just discovered in the towns of New Durham and Strafford, making Strafford County the newest New Hampshire county in the already-existing quarantine in Belknap, Hillsborough, Merrimack, and Rockingham counties. The new boundaries of the quarantine go into effect Sept. 21. The penalty provisions of the quarantine go into effect following a public comment period on Oct. 1. The public comment period about the quarantine of ash materials will be open until Sept. 30. Comments can be directed to the N.H. Department of Agriculture, Markets & Food by email at email@example.com. Plans are in the works for an informational and feedback meeting in early October.
