State officials work on plan to stop emerald ash borer spread
Now that the emerald ash borer is in Wisconsin, state officials will come up with a new plan to stop the tree killer from spreading.
Mick Skwarok of the ag department says officials will need time to determine how much infestation there is and it could take months to create a new strategy.
The state was originally going to cut all ash trees within a half-mile of where the bug's found. But other states learned it doesn't work.
