Untreated Out of State Firewood Banned
What Is Your Wood Hiding?
Exotic insects and diseases that pose a serious threat to our forests can move on firewood. Insects and diseases can be in on or under the bark of firewood or even within the wood itself. You often cannot see that pests are there. While an invasive pest may spread a few miles on its own in a single year, moving infested wood can spread the same pest hundreds of miles in a single day! Untreated firewood from outside of Maine has been banned.
Please help us Protect Maine's Forests.
Leave your firewood at home--don't give bugs a free ride!
