New England and New York are home to hundreds of species of trees. Keeping these trees safe from non-native insects and diseases is critical to the health of our forests and our community. Right now, outbreaks of insects like the emerald ash borer threaten to sicken and kill our amazing forests.
Preventing the spread of these pests is possible—all we have to do is spread the word that moving firewood moves pests. If nobody ever moves firewood more than a mile or two, these pests can never spread very far. It is really that simple. Don’t Move Firewood.
