Dear Don't Move Firewood,

I live in Albuquerque New Mexico and was planning to make a trip to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. What if any, are the restrictions for moving a pickup load of Hickory, Oak, Cherry and Apple back to NM with me when I return? Does this require any special permit? I plan to use the wood for heat and smoking meat. 

Yours,

Dear Don't Move Firewood,

I bought firewood from a grocery store in the Seattle area and when I cut it to make some kindling BEETLES came out of it! What should I do to let someone know? The wood came from (a distributor out of state) and they should be ashamed of themselves for selling infested wood!!!

Yours,

Concerned Kindling Cutter

Texas and Nebraska both announced that they've confirmed emerald ash borer in their states in the last month. Whenever a state discovers a high profile pest that can be transported by firewood within their boundaries, we here at Don't Move Firewood like to remind them that we are here to serve their needs!

Here is a list of ideas for Texas, Nebraska, and any other state actively reaching out to the public on the topic of invasive pests and pathogens that move on firewood.

Here at Don't Move Firewood, we strive to supply fellow non-profit and local agency outreach professionals with educational supplies to aid in their own Don't Move Firewood outreach efforts. That includes things like our brochures, fake tattoos, stickers, fans... you name it. So what's our most popular item? Fake tattoos! But we can never quite keep up with demand so here is an easy tutorial on how to order or make your own temporary tattoos.
