Today at St Louis Woodtuners meeting we had a Susan Ehlenbech from MO state dept of Agriculture. She informed us that there is a federal quarantine and transporting wood across MI IL IN OH state line with a fine of $1000.00 each piece of wood up to $25,000.00. Not just Ash all hard woods you must remove all bark and the first inch of wood. They wrote the rules to simplified enforcement. Additionally there are state fines.
