Following the detection of Thousand Cankers Disease in Lancaster County, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture today enacted a quarantine, effective immediately, restricting the movement of wood and wood products.

Lancaster joins Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties, which were quarantined in August 2014, and Bucks County, which was quarantined in 2011.

The quarantine restricts the movement of all walnut material and hardwood firewood from the six Pennsylvania counties and other states known to have the disease.

The disease was found in fields with black walnut trees in Drumore Township, Lancaster County. Samples were verified by the state and federal departments of agriculture. This is the third detection of Thousand Cankers Disease in the state.

An informational session will be held on Monday, November 10 at 1:00 pm at the Lancaster County Extension office in the Lancaster Home & Farm Center.
