Firewood Shipping?

Besides the fact that I can't quite fathom the ecological impact of shipping firewood somewhere, I wonder about the legality of it.

We live on 61 acres in the hills of beautiful TN and we have all the firewood we could possibly want. In fact, any of you are welcome to come take some.

But every campground we've seen has a rule about NOT bringing firewood in from out of the area because of the bugs you can import, which in that new environment can be an invasive species.

But how are these folks allowed to ship firewood? Saw this ad on FB just now.

Likely kiln dried for a short time to kill the creepy crawlers.

Ah, that would make sense.

if its kiln dried its going to burn much faster. I respect the rules and enjoy the snap crackle pop from the wet over priced firewood at the camp sites.

All of the firewood here (California) is the same kiln-dried stuff that's wrapped in prepackaged bundles. No wet wood. Still overpriced.

Shipping wood seems a bit overkill, especially since it's basically just entertainment.

I wonder if all of the mail order or shipped firewood is required to be heat treated. I wouldn't be surprised.

Yes it is. A lot of states have laws on the books about moving firewood.

I keep running into camp grounds, especially county and national forest, that post you can't bring firewood with you, it is available to purchase at the campground... only to get there and be told, nope, we don't have any...

I carry kiln dried fire wood and don't worry about it. So far no one has asked to check. Don't use very often anyway.

That would make it all "hard wood".

In areas that have the No Outside Wood policy, we can usually can find a nearby road-side private fire wood supplier and fill the back of the Jeep for about $10. Last maybe 3 - 4 days...any left, we leave for the next camper. CG owners know these guys and it's a good way to support the locals.

There's a CG in Priest Gulch(CO), near Dolores, that has a logging company dump their 'tailings' for free fire wood for their campers.

Priest Gulch Campground and RV Park on the River...the way all CGs should be. Hummingbird fights for food daily.

I think Solo is marketing to owners of their fire pit thingy. I checked, it's 20 bucks, minimum of 2 bundles. They are 6 to 8 logs 10 to 12 inch long, 3 to 4 inch thick.

I don't think they're trying to market to campers.

I keep looking at the Solo Stove but even their largest one won't accommodate standard logs.

In Michigan all the state parks sell kiln dried pre packaged wood for around 7 bucks a bundle. They have no problem with you bringing your own wood. I usually get a face cord or two delivered to my home and then, either, bundle it myself if I have to transport inside my rig or, if we don't have the scooter on the back, in a cargo carrier.
