Beetle Detectives Volunteer Effort

America’s neighborhoods and forests are under attack. The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) beetle has destroyed tens of millions of ash trees and The Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB) has destroyed tens of thousands of hardwood trees. They live in firewood. Move firewood and you spread the destruction. Help us protect the trees and stop the beetle. Promise you won’t move firewood.
