TREMPEALEAU COUNTY (WKOW) -- More Ash Trees in Wisconsin are in danger because of the spread of a tree-killing insect. The Emerald Ash Borer was found in a state park, right along the Mississippi River in Trempealeau County.
The bugs eat the tissue inside the Ash Trees, which eventually kills the trees. Firewood from Trempealeau County will now be quarantined so the Ash Borer doesn't spread. The beetle has been found in 12 other counties.
