Here’s how you can protect our forests and tree lined streets:
DON’T: Transport firewood, you may introduce an invasive pest into a new area. Remember that infested firewood may not show visible symptoms.
DO: Buy MDA certified firewood. MDA certified firewood has been treated to state standards and the MDA has verified the firewood safe to move throughout the state. Look for the MDA certified logo.
DO: Report firewood violations to MDA. If you have any questions regarding safe to move firewood or suspect a tree has a reportable pest contact the MDA’s Arrest the Pest at Arrest.the.Pest@state.mn.us or 888-545-6684.
