Tennessee

Tennessee  Summary:

Tennessee’s Department of Agriculture and Forest Health Management Program strongly discourages bringing any type of firewood into the state- including hardwood, softwood, seasoned and green. Many counties in Tennessee have strict prohibitions against moving materials beyond county lines, to prevent the spread of the emerald ash borer. Tennessee State Parks and all Tennessee Army Corp of Engineers Campgrounds now advise the public to use either heat-treated firewood, or downed wood collected inside the park, for campfires (effective June 2016). Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, and Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area also have specific rules and prohibitions regarding bringing firewood into their parks and visitors are potentially subject to seizure of their firewood and fines if in violation. Tennessee is helping its campers follow firewood policies and rules by participating in Firewood Scout, an online firewood vendor locator tool searchable by address, park, or area. This summary is accurate to the best of DMF staff abilities as of 8 January 2018.
