When you're chopping your own firewood at home, it's typically from dead or dying trees. And often with dead trees come invasive species like the emerald ash borer, which is a highly damaging species of insect. There's a simple way you can help prevent the spread of invasive species: Don't let your firewood leave your property. Moving just a few logs to gift to others or use on a camping trip can spread invasive species farther. It takes just one infected log to have a devastating impact.
