When most people hear the word "Quarantine," they think of isolating a person that's sick with some dangerous, contagious disease. When we talk about a forest pest related quarantine, the underlying concept is the same- it is just that instead of not letting people move around, we're often talking about not moving firewood around.

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

The Firewood Outreach Coordinating Initiative (FOCI) serves as a venue for individuals actively engaged in firewood outreach, allowing the frequent sharing of activities, ideas, and information throughout North America. One of the many participants in the FOCI is the manager of Don't Move Firewood (yours truly)- but it is important to note that Don't Move Firewood's campaign is one of many different facets of the FOCI- not the only one!
