The expansion of the quarantine area to the Easten Shore was prompted by MDA's discovery of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) in Queen Anne's, Talbot, and Dorchester counties.  Ash products can be transported within the multi-state quarantine zone but moving firewood is still strongly discouraged in order to slow the spread of the insect.  Please visit the following website for further information:  http://extension.umd.edu/news/emerald-ash-borer-quarantine-area-expanded-entire-state-maryland
