Thanks to the tireless work of so many organizations and agencies, the phrase “Don’t Move Firewood” is an increasingly common refrain among campers and outdoors enthusiasts. However, this message often brings about an immediate follow-up question: “So, where should I get it?”

Dear Don't Move Firewood,

May I use your link as an image to post on our city website for (site)?  I could just use the hyperlink, but I like the bold image as folks may be more inclined to hit on that.  I wanted to gain your permission first.  Thank you.

Dear Don't Move Firewood,

Recently, here in (town) they banned outdoor wood burning furnaces. What's the deal? Burning wood is cheap! I'm angry*!

Yours,

Guest blog by Rob Trickel, North Carolina Forest Service, Forest Health Branch Head

 

Thousands of visitors to the North Carolina State Fair became walking billboards for the North Carolina Forest Service Don’t Move Firewood campaign this fall.  Each visitor to the Fair's Forest was given the opportunity to answer a scavenger hunt type quiz in the Forest Service’s tent; once they answered all the questions they received a red drawstring backpack with a “don’t move firewood” message on the back.

Dear Don't Move Firewood,

You say that we shouldn't move firewood, but don't Christmas trees move really far before they get to our house? What about that? Can't that spread pests?

Yours,

Concerned about Christmas
