Packaged heat treated firewood with a stamp showing heat treatment of at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit for 75 minutes is permitted. Within the state of New Hampshire, the counties of Belknap, Hillsborough, Merrimack, Rockingham, and Strafford have additional prohibitions against moving materials that could transport emerald ash borer to outside county limits.
