BUY IT WHERE YOU BURN IT!
Transporting firewood threatens our forests by potentially giving a free ride to insects and diseases. Help protect New Hampshire’s wild and scenic beauty and leave your firewood at home when you travel. Don’t transport pests - when it comes to firewood,
Various regions in New Hampshire are infested with invasive tree-killing insects that are at risk for spread via firewood movement, including emerald ash borer (EAB) and hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA). Take the highest level of precaution in these areas when purchasing firewood by buying heat-treated wood, gathering wood on site when permitted, or, if neither of those options is available, purchase wood very local to the area. Buy or gather only what you need and burn it completely.
