A destructive beetle has shown up in Trempealeau County, making it the 13th county to have an infestation of the emerald ash borer.
The DNR says a single adult emerald ash borer was captured in a trap in Perrot State Park in Trempealeau, an area that's directly across from the infested areas of Winona and La Crosse counties.
Although Trempealeau County is not yet under quarantine, the DNR says it will be soon.
Jim Thompson with the DNR says "any of those who fall within 25 miles will be able to bring firewood even though it's located within quarantined county. At this time they cannot because we are not quarantined yet."
The emerald ash borer kills our native ash trees. Wisconsin's forests contain more than 770 million ash trees.
