Is Firewood Still a Vector of Invasives? A Case study of Firewood Movement Through the New Hampshire Speedway
This webinar from EAB University--a collaborative effort of the U.S. Forest Service, Michigan State University, Ohio State University and Purdue University--features New Hampshire State Entomologist Piera Siegert discussing the joint work with New Hampshire Motor Speedway and state agencies. The state has set up firewood inspection sites at the speedway in recent years to inform campers about firewood quarantines. Piera will also talk about the efforts to regulate ash products (particularly firewood) versus outreach to the public.
