Dear Don’t Move Firewood-
Can I transport firewood from Texas to Kentucky?
Yours, Road Trip Planner
Dear Road Trip Planner,
The state of Kentucky strongly advises not bringing firewood into Kentucky from out of state, regardless of which state it is coming from. In quite a few cases, it is illegal to transport firewood from Texas to Kentucky. For instance, it is illegal to bring firewood from out of state into any Kentucky State Park, and also against regulations to bring firewood from out of state into most National Parks within Kentucky. Further, it would be illegal to bring firewood that was stored outside on the ground from any federally quarantined areas for Imported Red Fire Ant, and the quarantined area for this pest is basically the entirety of Texas aside from the panhandle and the 9 west-most counties.
When you look at all these restrictions put together, you can see that it is either illegal, or just rather ill advised, to bring firewood from Texas to Kentucky. Instead, I’d urge you to use your Texas firewood in Texas, and purchase firewood upon reaching your destination in Kentucky. Good luck and thank you for asking!
