For the safety of both visitors and the environment, it is important to remember the “Don’t Move Firewood” rule. Forest pests can hitchhike on firewood. And invasive insects and diseases can threaten our native trees and forests! Leave firewood at home and use only local sources of firewood, and burn it all if you bring it into the forest.
