Don't Move Firewood was featured in a recent Associated Press article on the threat of Asian longhorned beetles and moving firewood! I was quoted, and I think it is a great article. Read here for the full text or check out this good excerpt;
A coalition of government and private groups is working to spread the word about leaving firewood at home.
Leigh Greenwood of the Nature Conservancy said moving firewood causes problems all over the country, threatening everything from oak trees in northern California to avocado crops in Florida.
Through Web sites and social networking, the groups hope to spread the word nationwide, especially because their research shows the people most familiar with the Internet also tend to be those who need to hear the message: 18-to-29-year-olds.
"They are the kind of person who packs up the pickup, tosses some firewood in to save a little bit of money then drives 400 miles," Greenwood said.
