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.

We must protect them by not moving firewood, so our kids, grandkids and great-grandkids can enjoy these amazing places like we do.
