100 words project

Have you ever tried to look up your state’s firewood regulations on our map and thought to yourself, “Wow, I’m still not really sure what I’m allowed to do here.” We here at Don’t Move Firewood understand. A lot of state and federal firewood regulations are written in technical language, or so buried in a lengthy webpage that you can’t really find them. Our new solution: the 100 words project.

Each state will have a summary written in 100 words or less, in plain English, of their firewood regulations- for everything in the state. This will include state regulations, federal regulations, and those that pertain to all sorts of specific parks and forests. We started in the farthest Eastern US in Maine, and we’re working our way out from there. So far we’ve written fifteen summaries and gotten formal approval from state officials from four of those states- almost 10%! Off to a good start.

Hopefully this will prove to be a useful resource to all our visitors. Thanks for reading. You can view the Firewood Map here.
