I see signs telling me not to move firewood. What does this mean?

Thanks for your question! Transporting firewood can very easily move invasive species to a new area. Many wood-boring invasive species spend the majority of their life underneath the bark of a tree in a larval or pupal form. When a tree is cut down for firewood, these individuals can remain alive in the wood. When this material is transported to a new area, the invasive species hidden within the relocated firewood can emerge as adults ready to infest the surrounding forest
