We are excited to release a new version of our Home Heating Infographic- the Ohio version! Made for people in Ohio that heat their home or cabin with wood, this infographic details how firewood is an inexpensive and efficient way to get through the cold months for many Ohioans. Here at Don't Move Firewood, we support the use of firewood when properly sourced (locally harvested, or heat treated, and always understand and comply with any pest related quarantines or restrictions).

Firewood is an important source of heat for many people- and you can help neighbors in need by donating extra firewood to a local wood bank. Donating extra firewood to a wood bank is a lot better then just giving it away on the roadside. The use of firewood given to a woodbank is almost always restricted to residents of the immediate town or city, as opposed to firewood just left to take at the roadside (which might be moved hundreds of miles by the end of a single day). Keeping firewood local is the best way to prevent the movement of forest pests.

Dear Don't Move Firewood,

I have a neighbor cutting up trees that he brings from another location in his driveway, that he then sells as firewood. We are in the middle of town, so not only is there a lot of noise, but I am worried he's bringing emerald ash borers or other bugs into our area. Is there anything I can do to find out if there are any issues with this? (question lightly edited for clarity)

Yours, Concerned Resident
