Don't Move Firewood!
Whether you pitch a tent, park your RV or just unroll your pack, at the end of the day there's always a campfire. And, you can't have a campfire without FIREWOOD.
Recently firewood has become a big concern due to the discovery of the emerald ash borer (EAB); an invasive beetle that kills ash trees. EAB is an enormous threat to North America's urban and rural forests and is so aggressive that ash trees may die within two or three years after becoming infested. People unknowingly contribute to the spread of EAB when they move firewood. EAB larvae can survive underneath the bark of ash firewood, and when it's moved from one place to another, EAB can hitchhike to a new location... a favorite campground, State park or wilderness retreat.
You can prevent the spread of EAB.
- Don't Move Firewood. Always keep your firewood in your county and if you buy it, know the source.
- If you are camping or hunting, buy firewood at your destination.
- Do not accept firewood from EAB-infested states.
- Know Federal & State regulations regarding the movement of firewood.
