USDA Ash Quarantine:

The spread of a pesky Asian immigrant, the emerald ash borer, has prompted the Department of Agriculture to expand the existing quarantine barring interstate transport of ash trees to include Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. (Michigan was already covered.) The borer was first found in the United States in 2002, and is already blamed for the destruction of 25 million ash trees in six states, according to this report.
