Firewood Month for Fall Recreationalists

Hunters, anglers, RV owners, and everyone that enjoys fall camping can protect the campsites and wildlife habitats that are important to them by preventing the spread of forest pests on firewood. Don’t move firewood – instead, plan to either gather firewood on site when that’s permitted, or purchase firewood near your camping destination. Do not fill any vehicle with firewood to burn at another destination – this can spread forest pests and may also violate state and federal laws depending on the region. You have the power to slow the spread of forest pests.

  • Gather firewood on site where permitted.
  • Buy it where you burn it.
  • Buy certified heat treated firewood.

You can protect the places you love by making safer firewood choices.
