To minimize the spread of the pests, the Pennsylvania Department of
Agriculture has implemented a quarantine banning the importation of
out-of-state firewood. Firewood includes all wood processed or
unprocessed, coniferous or hardwood, meant for use in a campfire or
other outdoor or indoor fire. Kiln-dried, packaged firewood clearly
marked with the producer's name and address and labeled as 'Kiln
Dried' and/or USDA Certified are exempt from the provisions of this
quarantine. Click here for the complete firewood quarantine order.
This means ALL firewood coming in from out of state. No exceptions.
They tried for a while keeping it to only "unaffected" counties, but
now it is a complete ban, and has been for a little while.
