New York Summary:
New York firewood regulations prohibit bringing untreated firewood into the state and limit the transport of untreated NY grown firewood to no more than 50 miles from its source or origin. Untreated firewood purchased from a producer/retailer in New York must be accompanied by documentation that includes the producer’s name, address, and firewood source. Individuals that cut firewood for their own personal use must fill out a self-issued certificate of origin, available here, when transporting the firewood. If you are a firewood dealer, you must provide documentation of the firewood’s source to your customers. Heat treated firewood may move freely within New York, but must be heated to a core temperature of 71°C (160°F) for 75 minutes and clearly labeled. Federal quarantines pertaining to emerald ash borer and Asian longhorned beetle are in effect, further limiting the transport of firewood out of specific areas. This summary is accurate to the best of DMF staff abilities as of 17 September 2019.
