Or picking a place to park your camper? It’s the perfect vacation getaway. Pulling up to a beautiful campsite, enjoying nature, the woods or forest, in a state or national park. And you might be thinking about bringing firewood along from home. But don’t! Bringing firewood from home to the place you’re camping could put your favorite campsite or park in danger.
The bugs can crawl out, spread to the trees and forest at the campground or state or national park, and begin to destroy those trees and forests. That means less fun for future campers. We’re careful to extinguish campfires, pick up after ourselves in campgrounds, state parks and national parks, so we should be conscientious campers when it comes to moving firewood as well.
What can you do to stop the spread of invasive pests on firewood?
