MADISON (WKOW) -- Emerald ash borer has been found in Superior, the most northern location in Wisconsin yet.
Members of a Superior city street crew were removing a dead tree from a boulevard last week when they found signs of emerald ash borer infestation. The U.S. Department of Agriculture confirmed this week that the insects are emerald ash borers.
The Superior discovery is far from other infestations. Trempealeau County is the next nearest Wisconsin county where emerald ash borer has been found.
Douglas County will be quarantined. The quarantine prohibits ash wood products and hardwood firewood from being moved out of the county to areas that are not infested.
