Are they trying to imply that insects won't cross state lines ? I'm being sarcastic but where does it end ?....where does it end ?

Here in ca a tiny bug that wiped out the citrus industry in florida was discovered in a backyard, will cost lots to stop, and quarantine costs add up fast.

Just google invading pests and you will understand these things.

Just think before you complain about these things as the food supply that is impacted may be yours.

We transport our own wood, but we are local, moving local from our yard materials to local spot so.in our case fine.

Some folks use as excuse to male extra bucks by not allowing self supply at a cg, but that is either profit driven or maybe local regulation driven.

We are in central ca and do not lean to left, politics has nothing usually to do with these things, just keeping the invaders out

We use One-Log-Fires firewood; it's a single log fire that burns from the center of a vertical log. They are kiln dried as part of the "manufacturing process" thus no bugs!

Living in an Emerald Ash Borer infested community, I personally have had 3 Ash trees die on my small suburban lot. I don't think they stop at state lines, but they can't exactly divide the country constantly on infected vs non-infected areas. This isn't the first invasive species and won't be the last. Our Great Lakes were also hit with an invasive creature that hurt fishing for example.

OH's ash trees have been devistated by the ash borer. I lost one lovely ash & am battling to save another on my property. According the the state extension agency, next we're in for the Asian longhorn beetle attacking our chesnuts, poplars, elms...etc. Another bug there's no insecticide for.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Most forests are geographically separated enough to prevent the spread of most evasive species that damage them. If one had seen the damage done to forests by the bark borer beetle, they would be less apathetic toward pest importation. Those little buggers (pun intended) can kill half the trees in a forest in as little as two or three years. The dead standing timber is highly volatile fuel for massive wildfires.
