The federal deregulation of emerald ash borer in January 2021 was widely expected to lead to many changes in the regulatory environment around firewood in the USA. This webinar will highlight the release of a new report written by staff of The Nature Conservancy’s Don’t Move Firewood campaign, covering what regulations and recommendations are in place a year after the EAB deregulation was finalized. We will describe how the current regulatory environments applying to the inter- and intra-state movement of firewood vary greatly in type and prevalence across the United States. The dynamic situation of many forest pests, coupled with the different challenges faced by the state agencies’ statutory authorities and priorities, forest conditions, and unique geographies, have all combined to create a complex regulatory mosaic- and as a result, a very challenging outreach environment.
