REMINDER - PLEASE DON'T IMPORT OAK FIREWOOD
It's that time of year! Smother those chills with a nice cozy fire - but avoid burning oak. Bringing oak firewood into Del Dios can also bring in the GSOB beetle. Even wood that sits unused for only a few days is a threat to our oak tree population. Learn more about the beetle and containment here.
