FIREWOOD AWARENESS MONTH
This is the time of year many of us start thinking about heating with wood once again. It's also a good time to remember that LOCAL is the watch word when it comes to buying, cutting and/or moving firewood.
The Asian Longhorned Beetle is just one example of many nasty insects that can be moved around in firewood
According to the American Forest Foundation, up to a quarter of all pieces of wood in a typical firewood pile can hold live insects inside them.
So please, remember to get your wood locally and keep it here too! Happy fall!
