Don’t Move Firewood

Trees are being destroyed through the transportation of invasive insects & diseases in firewood. 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.

The Don't Move Firewood campaign is managed on a day-to-day basis by The Nature Conservancy's Forest Health Protection Program staff. Don't Move Firewood as a whole was begun, and is advised, by the Continental Dialogue on Non-native Insects and Diseases. To learn more, visit our About Us page. To see how we are funded, visit our Funding page. Visit http://www.dontmovefirewood.org for more information.
