Don`t Move Firewood! Regulations in EffectBy transporting firewood, you could be spreading diseases and invasive insects that can quickly kill large numbers of trees. New York State has several counties with known forest pest infestations, and if firewood continues to be transported across the state, these infestations will rapidly spread.
Please do not transport untreated* firewood to state lands, campgrounds or parks -- only bring heat treated firewood or obtain firewood at or near the campground. For more information on the availability of firewood please contact the campground directly.
New York State is considering a ban on all untreated firewood from entering state owned lands including state campgrounds and parks in the near future.
Help SLOW THE SPREAD and obey the Firewood Regulation:
