Did you know that some invasive moths can travel to new places, and infest new forests and trees, on contaminated firewood? In 2015, National Moth Week will be July 18th to 26th, and here at Don't Move Firewood we are providing all our free moth-related materials and downloads to anyone that would like to learn more about how to identify or prevent the movement of invasive moths. In particular, we have a good selection of materials on gypsy moth.

Maryland has fought for a dozen years to slow the spread of the emerald ash borer.  State agency leaders knew they had ash resources worth protecting:  more than 200,000 trees in the state’s principal city, Baltimore.  Ashes are the most common tree in the city.  The surrounding counties have even more- up to an estimated 6.5 million ash trees.
