New Jersey wants to keep out-of-state firewood out

(Aug. 23, 2010) -- While campers are not obligated to buy local firewood, New Jersey officials hope campers will choose to comply.

NEW JERSEY — State agriculture officials, fearing that campers bringing in their firewood from elsewhere could carry invasive insects and damage forests, want to limit firewood used to New Jersey wood only. They also want wood from only a 50-mile radius of the campgrounds, reports Press of Atlantic City.

The Emerald ash borer and the Sirex woodwasp aren’t yet in New Jersey. The Southern pine beetle is already in Cape May and Cumberland counties.

While campers are not obligated to buy local firewood, the Press of Atlantic City says state officials hope campers will choose to comply.
