RBC | With summer approaching, many people will be packing up the tent and sleeping bags to enjoy all of Colorado’s great camping locations. As such, the Colorado Department of Agriculture reminds outdoor enthusiasts to leave their firewood at home.

“Moving firewood across the state can contribute to tree mortality,” said Jeanne Ring, CDA’s cooperative agricultural pest survey coordinator. “Insects and diseases can be transported with the wood and can hurt or even kill Colorado’s forests.”
