It is that time of year again, when everyone starts emailing us here at Don't Move Firewood to ask the excellent, pertinent, logical question:

BUT WHAT ABOUT CHRISTMAS TREES?

Easy! Just like firewood- buy local, and/or buy from a reputable dealer. Christmas trees are actually a pretty well regulated product, so as long as you are buying from a licensed local business, your potential to accidentally spread pests is very low.

 

For our full exposition on the topic, visit our page on Holiday Greenery, or read previous blogs discussing Buying Christmas Trees and Wreathes or How to Dispose of Christmas Decorations

 

Happy Holiday Season!
