Can I bring firewood with me?
Firewood transportation is prohibited. The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has issued a notice prohibiting the movement of all species of firewood into the State, effective immediately. This quarantine has been issued because of the threat posed by various wood-feeding insects, including Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), Asian Longhorned Beetle, Sirex Wood Wasp, and bark beetles that are considered threats to Pennsylvania’s forest, horticultural and recreational resources. PLEASE help us and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture by not transporting firewood into Pennsylvania. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
