you have no basis for this comment. I doubt your an attorney, forester, or even spend anytime in the forest other then to drive through on a paved road. how many days a yr. do you spend out in the woods. not a cg. if you really know forest tell me what a level one fire restriction is. I won't even ask for an explanation of what a level 2,3,or 4 is.

In this area the Emerald Ash Borer is devastating the Ash trees. I have a lot of Black Ash on my land and am hoping they do not show up here, but probably they will.

I do not take firewood from our woods when we travel. We already have Oak Wilt and Dutch Elm Disease on our land. I do not want to spread it and hope others feel the same.

I like a camp fire just like the rest of you but will pay the price to burn local wood.

Clearly you don't read signs posted at campgrounds do you? Lol!

You are correct, I am not an attorney nor a forester. My "basis" is stated clearly in the link that I posted and has nothing whatsoever to do with forest fires nor "level one fire restriction."

Firewood can harbor many different kinds of invasive pests and diseases that are harmful to trees. Many states have regulations in place to prevent the transport of firewood that could potentially harm otherwise healthy trees.

We know our home is vulnerable to forrest fires, but this is our way of life. We carry our wood in the MH everywhere we go and have never had a problem. But, we are mostly summer travelers which keeps us up north. I'm sure city folks look at fire as being taboo along with guns and other necessities of life we take for granted in the country. I think I'm out far enough not to be encroached by city thinking, but if they get too close we'll just pick up stakes and move further out. The same holds true for our RV travels. Ban camp fires and we'll just move on or out
Good for you, our types are getting to be fewer and fewer.
P.S. I also don't have a "BABY ON BOARD" sign in any of my vehicles

For us camping isn't camping without ending the day visiting with new friends around a campfire.

I am a newbie at camping/RV'ing. I never gave camp fires much thought but I have witnessed vast forests blighted by invasive pests.

It doesn't take much thought to imagine the little beasts jumping off transported wood into their newfound home. Especially when their current residence catches fire in a little pit.

It is very obvious from many of these postings that some people think the whole world belongs to them alone and they should be allowed to destroy anything they please in the name of "freedom".

One thing I have learned is that if I do decide I want to enjoy a campfire I will make it with local wood.

Thanks all!

-Bill

Thanks again, Sarah!

Many folks are agravated at local requirements on wood transportation, and this tends to contribute to the "end of campfires" thoughts by some because of higher cost.

I have found local wood that I could buy cheaper and in quantity. This can greatly decrease cost. Just ask your "neighbor" like I did.

I advise folks to review Sarah's link, and also consider these:

Oregon: http://www.dontmovefirewood.org/blog...es-oregon.html

New York: http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/28722.html

Info by state for Emerald Ash Borer: http://www.emeraldashborer.info/fire....sh2SEDGM.dpbs

So, when you say "never had a problem yet", I imagine that means you brought your wood, burned it and went home. No problem, for you.

But you don't really know if you left a problem behind.

I find fire kills all life forms also I was talking legal from bring own wood. also depends what kind of wood if it has organisms in it.
