Emerald Ash Borer State-Wide Quarantine 

The Iowa DNR and IDALS announced on Feb 4, 2014, a quarantine for the entire state of Iowa. Even though Iowa has been quarantined statewide, Iowans are encouraged not to transport firewood across county or state lines, since moving firewood poses the greatest threat to quickly spreading EAB or possibly other pests even further.
