Trailer stolen from Metro Detroit nonprofit that helps adults with special needs
MILFORD, Mich. – A trailer purchased for a nonprofit in support of adults with special needs has been stolen. For two years, the group saved up more than $8,000 and bought the trailer last month for their firewood selling business. But with their new trailer stolen, Hall has put up their tent rental assets for sale to raise money. “We need the trailer more than we need the tents,” he said. Their tent business was impacted last year because of COVID-19.
Michigan agency: Moving firewood can spread invasive species
LANSING, Mich. State officials are reminding Michigan residents as the summer camping season begins not to transport or move firewood because doing so can spread invasive species to other locations. Michigans Department of Agriculture and Rural Development says new infestations of invasive pests or diseases pose a serious threat to the states agriculture, forests and the environment. Invasive species can hide in or on firewood. Officials said that infestations of invasive species or diseases can destroy forests, lower property values and be costly to control.
