Protect the Trees You Love
From Tree-killing Bugs
They give you shade. They provide oxygen. Let’s make sure trees everywhere can do the same for future generations. If you’re a camper heading out for a trip — or just getting firewood for your wood stove — do nature a favor. Don’t move firewood long distances — it can potentially transport invasive species. Instead, buy it where you’ll burn it, buy certified heat-treated firewood — or gather on site where permitted. The forests, and your great-great-grandkids, will thank you.
While you’re here, check out our firewood map or visit our frequently asked questions. Look through our free downloadable posters and kid’s coloring pages. Read our blog or friend us on Facebook. And if you work on firewood issues, visit our toolbox page to see the best of our extensive firewood resource library.
