Wood that looks clean and healthy can still have tiny insect eggs, or microscopic fungi spores, that will start a new and deadly infestation.
To prevent the risk starting a new infestation of an invasive insect or disease, don’t take firewood with you on your camping trip, RV adventure, or up to your hunting camp. Instead, buy it where you’ll burn it – that means the wood was cut within 50 miles of where you’ll have your fire.
Aged or seasoned wood is still not safe. Just because it is dry doesn't mean that bugs can’t crawl onto it. Tell your friends not to bring wood with them – everyone needs to know that they should not move firewood.
