News Don’t bring firewood to Haliburton County SHARE ON: Sue Black, staff Thursday, Jan. 9th, 2014 With the cleanup underway in Toronto after the massive ice storm, residents are wondering what to do with all the wood from fallen trees. The message from Haliburton County is, don’t bring it here. The Emerald Ash Borer is a beetle that has infested trees in Southern Ontario, and most of the United States. Although experts are saying the extreme cold kills the larvae, the threat of infestation still exists. Once established, a pest may damage or take over our natural forest ecosystems and be impossible or extremely difficult and costly to remove.
