October is Firewood Awareness Month! Buy Local Burn Local to protect our forests.

Moving firewood long distances can spread invasive forest pests hidden in or on the wood. Small bugs, eggs and tree killing diseases can be in your fire wood and you may not know it.  Avoid putting our beautiful forests at risk by only using fire wood that has been cut locally

Your firewood choices matter, and you can help slow the spread of these tree-killing pests! Instead, make one of these better choices:

  • Buy firewood where you’ll burn it.
  • Don’t move firewood
  • Gather firewood on site when permitted.
