Don't Move Firewood

Help Keep Danforth Bay Naturally Beautiful!

Trees are being destroyed through the transportation of invasive insects & diseases in firewood. Only you can help to stop it.

New Hampshire’s exterior quarantine prohibits bringing out-of-state firewood into the state of New Hampshire. Nearly all types of firewood are prohibited via this regulation- hardwood, softwood, seasoned and green. Packaged heat treated firewood with a stamp showing heat treatment of at least 140 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 minutes is permitted. To reduce the movement of forest pests within the state, authorities in the state of New Hampshire advise that firewood should be bought and used as locally as possible. This summary is accurate to the best of DMF staff abilities as of 5 October 2018.

One of the most important things we can do to protect trees is stop moving invasive pests and diseases to new areas on firewood. It’s really that simple- don't move firewood, and keep trees healthy and alive. 

Danforth Bay has joined forces with the Don't Move Firewood campaign with a goal of protecting the trees and forests of New England by stopping the transportation of invasive insects and diseases in firewood.

 

Danforth Bay has bundles of wood for sale at The Depot and a list of safe local wood suppliers is available.
