Firewood Regulations per New York State Department of Environmental Conservation
A NEW DEC REGULATION is now in effect that prohibits the import of firewood into New York unless it has been heat treated to kill pests. The regulation also limits the transportation of untreated firewood to less than 50 miles from its source. By transporting firewood, you could be spreading diseases and invasive insects that can quickly kill large numbers of trees. Help STOP THE SPREAD and obey the Firewood Regulation:

It is best to leave all firewood at home - please do not bring it to campgrounds or parks. Get your firewood at the campground or from a local vendor - ask for a receipt or label that has the firewood's local source. If you choose to transport firewood within New York State:
• It must have a receipt or label that has the firewood's source and it must remain within 50 miles of that source.
• For firewood not purchased (i.e. cut from your own property) you must have a Self-Issued Certificate of Source (available at the campground), and it must be sourced within 50 miles of your destination.
• Only firewood labeled as meeting New York's heat treatment standards to kill pests (kiln-dried) may be transported into the state and further than 50 miles from the firewood's source.

• Be Considerate of Others • Drive Slowly • Watch Out for Children •
