Buyer beware! Did you know that not all packaged firewood is heated enough to kill wood pests? Learn more here. http://ow.ly/yptyQ

Great read today on controlling gypsy moth- an #invasive that readily starts new infestations via eggs on #firewood. http://ow.ly/ygFMW
Maggie Koerth-Baker on how protecting endangered species has taught us something about eradicating invasive ones.

Good news coverage on the Smokies @NatlParkService firewood regulation proposal here: http://ow.ly/yKtGR Prevention is the key!
New park regulations would allow only heat-treated wood.

Camping in your actual backyard for the Great American Backyard Camp-Out? Go ahead, use #firewood from home! That's what it is for.

Port inspections are crucial! Great article on NPR about this line of defense against invasive species. http://ow.ly/y5SJ1 #forestpests
A few weeks ago, U.S. Customs and Border Protection spotted an unfamiliar moth in a shipment of organic soybeans. It was a small victory in the effort to prevent the spread of exotic pests.

Building conversations about threats to forests from non-native insects & diseases.
Introduction

One of the most important things we can do to protect trees is stop moving invasive pests and diseases to new areas on firewood. It’s really that simple- don't move firewood, and keep trees healthy and alive. Forests are great places to play, but they also keep our air clean and our water pure. We must protect them by not moving firewood, so our kids, grandkids and great-grandkids can enjoy these amazing places like we do.
