"America’s neighborhoods and forests are under attack. The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) beetle has destroyed tens of millions of ash trees. It lives in firewood. Move firewood and you spread the destruction. Help us protect the trees — and stop the beetle. Promise you won’t move firewood."
I have a White Ash tree in my front yard, and I don't want it to be killed by this pest. I found out today that these little villians can live for two years in firewood, so if you think that any wood you are transporting is safe because it's been sitting around a long time, think again!
