|This camping and hunting season, get your firewood from a vendor close to your destination. Don’t pack your own! Invasive insects and diseases in dead and dying wood threaten our native trees and forests. If you move firewood, you could be giving these pests a free ride to new territory.|
Just one example of a pest moving in firewood is the emerald ash borer (EAB), a destructive, invasive insect from Asia. EAB is responsible for more than 20 million dead and dying ash trees and millions of dollars in damage in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Concerned forest conservationists met at the Morton Arboretum in Illinois, for the first Firewood Forum. It was designed to provide an opportunity to learn more about the forest health hazards of transporting firewood.
