The quarantine on black walnut in Virginia to limit the spread of Thousand Cankers Disease and the walnut twig beetle, which already encompassed numerous counties, has recently been expanded to include King and Queen, King William, and New Kent counties.

The quarantine prohibits the movement of all walnut plants and walnut plant parts, including logs, stumps, firewood, roots, branches, mulch and chips out of the quarantined area.
