The State of Maine has Banned the Import of Firewood!

Hauling insect-infested firewood from home dramatically speeds up the spread of invasive insects that harm our forests. An invasive insect population might spread a few miles on its own in a single year. But moving infested wood can spread the same pest hundreds of miles in a single day.

  • Pests can be in, on, or under the bark or in the wood.
  • Help protect Maine's forests--buy wood where you burn it.
