Wisconsin

Wisconsin Summary:

It is illegal to move non-certified firewood from any location that is under quarantine for a forest pest into any place in Wisconsin that is not under quarantine for that same pest. This includes prohibiting the transport of firewood across quarantine borders that are within the state of Wisconsin (gypsy moth) as well as the transport of firewood into Wisconsin from other states known to harbor forest pests including mountain pine beetle, hemlock woolly adelgid, and Asian longhorned beetle. As of 2018, the entire state of Wisconsin is under federal quarantine for emerald ash borer and county to county movement is no longer regulated for that pest. Check with individual tribes about moving firewood through their lands. Campers are prohibited from bringing non-certified firewood into Wisconsin State Parks and other state-managed lands from locations farther than 10 miles away, and the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest from locations farther than 25 miles away. The Army Corps of Engineers properties, private campgrounds, and local or county campgrounds may have additional firewood rules. The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) administers a firewood certification program for commercial firewood producers and dealers. This summary is accurate to the best of DMF staff abilities as of 17 September 2019.
