REMINDER - PLEASE DON'T IMPORT OAK FIREWOOD
It's that time of year! Smother those chills with a nice cozy fire - but avoid bringing in pests with your wood. Only use wood that has been seasoned for a full year before you bring it on your property and do your best to burn it all by April. Learn more about the beetle and containment here.
