Firewood regulation, certification, and recommendation report

Many firewood-relevant regulatory changes happened in 2021 across the United States, due in large part to two separate pest related events; the deregulation of emerald ash borer, and a long term regional shift in the Eastern states’ approach to thousand cankers of walnut. With these changes and more at hand, in Fall and Winter 2021-2022 the team at Don’t Move Firewood wrote a comprehensive research and synthesis report of firewood regulations, certification, and outreach statuses, with the goal to provide simple and accurate professional comparative summaries for each major topic area.

The top-level national report, with state and territory appendices, is now available here: FirewoodComparisonReport_11Apr2022a1

Multiple webinars will cover the report and its findings.
