The Problem

The ash borer beetle has invaded the woods and killed many ash trees. Some of these can be salvaged to sustainably manage the dead trees as a source of fuel. An elder in the community needs help hauling and stacking firewood to heat her house.

Our Plan

We will salvage some of the ash wood from the woods. We will haul it to the elder’s house and stack it on her porch.
