TIPS: Check Firewood Transportation Laws Online Before Leaving Home

Talking while driving

Firewood by nosha

Planning for your camping trip this summer isn’t complete without a visit to Don’t Move Firewood to check its state-by-state map of restrictions in place to minimize the transportation of invasive species. Laws vary from state to state and can change annually. According to the site, which is operated by The Nature Conservancy, your best bet is to buy your firewood upon arrival, making sure your purchases come from local trees.

Should you find a pest, say an Emerald Ash Borer in Kentucky or something suspicious in your own backyard, you can report it to the USDA here.— Hilary Solan
