Help Stop the Spread of Invasive Pests and Diseases

Our forests are threatened by nonnative insects and diseases that can kill large number of trees. Goldspotted oak borer, Sudden Oak Death, pitch canker, Emerald ash borer, Asian longhorned beetle can be transported long distanced in firewood. Once transported into new areas, these insects and diseases can become established and kill local trees. 

 

How Can You Help:

  • Leave firewood at home - do not transport it to campgrounds or parks
  • Use firewood from local sources
  • Burn all firewood before leaving your campiste if leaving the local area

 

 

BUY IT WHERE YOU BURN IT
