[ARCHIVED] Burn It Where You Buy It

Remember: Do not transport firewood this holiday weekend. Firewood can bring tree diseases into new areas. Dutch Elm Disease, Oak Wilt, and Emerald Ash Borer are just some of the tree diseases found in Apple Valley. Don't bring them up to your cabin...

There are lots of tree diseases and pests out there. Some of the most harmful ones are small insects or are spread by small insects that bore under the bark of a tree. These problem insects generally don't fly very far from the trees they grow up in - maybe a half mile per year. But you can unwittingly act like a tree pest super highway when you move firewood from one area to another: from your home to your cabin, or your cabin to your home. So remember, don't transport firewood. Burn it where you buy it.
