Firewood Movement in Wisconsin

Two quarantines exist in Wisconsin that affect firewood movement for the general public: A gypsy moth quarantine and a quarantine for emerald ash borer.

Please note that loggers, timber haulers, and sawmills are already regulated and are not a concern. The inspections and certifications they require in order to transport hardwood firewood ARE NOT available to the general public.

Firewood can be used at state properties if it comes from within 25 miles and obeys the permitted list above. Wood from yellow-shaded counties is permitted on state properties in non-quarantine counties within 25 miles. No firewood from outside Wisconsin is allowed on state properties.

DATCP-certified firewood can be used at all state properties, regardless of distance traveled.

If driving through a RED or GREEN quarantine area with firewood, you must not stop for any longer than it would take to gas up your vehicle.
If visiting a private, county, or municipal campground, call ahead for specific firewood policy information.
