[ARCHIVED] Don't Transport Firewood Over the Holiday Weekend; Burn It Where You Buy It

Dutch Elm Disease, Oak Wilt, Emerald Ash Borer, and other tree disease can be spread to your cabin when you transport firewood. Purchase firewood from a certified firewood vendor...

The firewood that you bring along camping can harbor insects under the bark that cause or carry tree diseases like Oak Wilt, Dutch Elm Disease, and Emerald Ash Borer. When you move firewood from your home to other areas, you run the risk of spreading tree diseases to a new area. Additionally, Apple Valley is under a quarantine that prohibits the movement of firewood to other counties due to the presence of Emerald Ash Borer in the City. Purchase firewood from a certified vendor near where you will use it. Happy Labor Day!
