Protect Manitoba's Trees. Don't move firewood

How to Stop the Spread

The simplest way to help prevent Emerald Ash Borer from destroying Manitoba ash trees is by not moving firewood.

Emerald ash borers may be lurking in untreated ash firewood. Moving firewood from one location to another could mean you're moving Emerald Ash Borer form one location to another. It only takes one infected log and one female ash borer to destroy an entire forest.

Do your part:


It is illegal to import firewood from the U.S.A. into Canada. When entering Manitoba, declare any firewood you may have.
