43 counties in Pennsylvania have now been quarantined.  Basically the western 2/3 of the state.  Last year it was about 7 counties.  Here's the map for PA:

Of the quarantined counties, only 11 have had the beetle detected.  All ash logs, green lumber, all tree products including stumps and branches are restricted in movement.  All firewood, irregardless of species, is also quarantined.
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

"I'm not sure how quickly the trees will rot once killed by the EAB. "

I live in Ashland township. which ironicly has no ash trees now....  Anyway, ash seems to stay pretty stable after its dea.  I have cut up trees that have been dead for 2+ years, and only the outer edge was damaged from the beetles themselves.  It makes some great lumber. 

John Mc, I'd love to see pics of your flooring.  I plan on ash floors throughout the house shortly.
