 New York (WENY) - This week marks the 4th annual New York Emerald Ash Borer Awareness week.
     
If you don't know what the emerald ash borer is then beware of this beetle. The Department of Environmental Conservation's campaign urges people not to move firewood farther than 50 miles from where it was cut.
     
Ash Borer larvae have destroyed tens of millions of ash trees in the United States since 2002.
