This is an excerpt from an ABC news wire article from today:
"Ind. May 30, 2006 (AP)"” A tiny green beetle that decimates ash trees is nibbling away at traditional summer campfires as states try to halt the insect's spread through infested firewood that campers unwittingly haul into parks.

Indiana, Ohio and Michigan where the emerald ash borer has been located have imposed tough rules on bringing wood into parks and moving live ash trees or logs out of infested areas.

Wisconsin and South Dakota have banned out-of-state firewood outright, and other states are keeping a wary eye on the bug, which has killed nearly 20 million North American ash trees in the three infested states and southern Ontario.

The iridescent green beetle"

The article is very long but thought we all need to be aware of restictions.
