If you plan to have a fire at your campsite this fall, it is very important to remember not to bring firewood in from outside the county. Insects and diseases live inside wood and introducing these to new areas can be very dangerous to local trees! We have firewood for sale on site at the General Store! Please either purchase your wood there, or make sure it was store-bought and labeled as safe. There is often brush and wood around your campsite as well.
For more information, read this email sent from NC State and NC A&T with details about the emerald ash borer, which is a particular danger right now!
