Buy it Where You Burn it!

If you’ve lived in or near California for a few years, you more than likely have heard of the Mediterranean fruit fly that attacked our fruit orchards or the gypsy moth that defoliated trees or the African honeybees that are damaging our native honeybee hives. You have probably heard about the border inspection stations checking fruit coming into California or the pesticide spray delivered by helicopter in the middle of the night. Well….now our forests are under attack and you can help.

The Goldspotted Oak Borer is killing oaks in San Diego County and Sudden Oak Death is killing coastal oaks in fourteen counties. Both of these invasive pests can be spread through movement of infested firewood. Help stop the spread of these harmful pests and protect our forest by buying and burning firewood locally, leaving anything unused behind.

A multi-agency task force has been formed to help protect California’s forests. The California Firewood Task Force’s mission is to initiate and facilitate efforts within the state to protect our native and urban forests from invasive pests that can be moved on firewood.

To that end the Task Force has created resources for California campers:

Camp-California is concerned about the health and safety of our campers and adventurers. While camping and outdoor activities do offer the ability to self-isolate, we are encouraging all California residents and travelers to shelter in place until further notice. We recognize that getting outdoors is what you do best, and we will be here to reacquaint you with nature once we're cleared for adventure again!

 

Most private parks are open with 14-day minimums. If you are a full-time RVer looking to shelter in place, a member of the traveling medical profession, or a utility worker looking for a park please call our office and we can connect you with an appropriate location.
