Transporting Firewood (and Insects)
Maine's forests are threatened by the spread of several
very destructive invasive forest insects and diseases, and
many of these can be hidden in or on firewood. On their
own, these pests may move only a few miles a year, but
when hitching a ride on firewood, they can be moved
hundreds of miles in a single day.
Katahdin Forest Management is asking campers to leave
their firewood at home, and to either travel with kiln-dried
firewood or buy wood locally where they will burn it.
All trash is to be carried out with you when you leave.
Please leave the area clean when you depart.

The Maine Legislature has banned the bringing of firewood
into Maine. (Sec. 1. 12 MRSA § 8307)
Also the practice of
transporting firewood for a distance of more than 50 miles from home,
even within the state is discouraged.
This is due to the threat of invasive
insects that are transported in the firewood.
Out of respect for the landowner and the
north woods, we no longer allow firewood to be brought in to the area in
order to protect the forest from invasive insects.
