DO NOT MOVE FIREWOOD

Emerald_ash_borer

The Emerald Ash Borer Working Group advises residents of, and visitors to, the Grey, Bruce, Saugeen, and Sauble areas to not move firewood.
The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is a highly destructive insect pest of Ash trees. The greatest risk of spreading the EAB is through the movement of Ash forest products such as firewood and logs. A single piece of firewood can destroy a million trees. Everyone is encouraged to help slow the infestation to protect Ontario’s trees and forests. Do Not Move Wood.
If you own an Ash Tree that you would like to protect contact your local forestry professional or licensed arborist for treatment advice.
