Virginia Summary:

The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services restricts moving any firewood from all quarantined states or counties into the state of Virginia without a proper permit. Firewood cannot be transported from central or eastern Virginia into western Virginia due to the European gypsy moth quarantine, and firewood cannot be transported out of thousand cankers disease infested areas into any other part of Virginia. As of May, 2019 there is also a spotted lanternfly quarantine in effect for Frederick county and the city of Winchester. The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation strongly discourages bringing firewood into State Parks and will confiscate any firewood brought from a quarantined county. Shenandoah National Park prohibits visitors from bringing any firewood into the park that isn’t certified as being heat treated, and instead advises purchasing or gathering firewood within the park. Assateague Island National Seashore prohibits bringing out-of-state firewood to the park and encourages purchasing local firewood. The Blue Ridge Parkway requires firewood to be bundled and certified if brought into the park, otherwise campers may collect dead and down wood from within the park. This summary is accurate to the best of DMF staff abilities as of 18 September 2019.
