How can I be sure I’m not spreading SOD with my tools?

The most important part of ensuring that tools will not spread SOD is to be sure that no organic debris or soil is present on the tools. This applies to all portions of each tool, including parts that may not be visible (like the return of a chain in a chainsaw or the interior of a tree chipper).  For more information on cleaning tools and equipment, go to https://nature.berkeley.edu/garbelottowp/?p=1208.
