NYS DEC's quarantine order will prohibit the intrastate movement of EAB, and the movement of ash nursery stock, ash trees, and ash wood products, and firewood, wood chips and bark mulch from any tree species, beyond the quarantine district without certification or compliance agreements from the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, or the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service of the United States Department of Agriculture (APHIS), in addition to other provisions as defined in the order.|
