FARGO - The Fargo Forestry Department has started inspecting firewood at homes around the city in an effort to manage the spread of Dutch elm disease.

The inspection, which started Monday, April 2, will be conducted throughout the week. Department inspectors may need access to private property in order to complete the process.

Inspectors will attempt to make contact at the property, identify any elm firewood with a paint mark and provide a notice to the property owner.

All infected logs must be placed on the boulevard for pickup by April 13. The Forestry Department must also be notified at 701-241-1465.

Fargo city ordinance prohibits storing or transporting elm wood with bark still attached.
