Minnesota Campgrounds Impose Firewood Restrictions

Minnesota Bike Trails - MN,USA
The recent discovery of emerald ash borer (EAB) in a St. Paul neighborhood means that people should no longer pack firewood when making summer camping plans.

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Commissioner Mark Holsten on May 20 issued a revised order dealing with use of firewood on state land.

Under the new order, only firewood purchased at a state park or from a DNR-approved vendor may be brought onto state land. Otherwise, kiln-dried, untreated lumber that is free of any metal or foreign substances can be used as firewood.

The receipt supplied by the approved vendor should be retained as proof of purchase.

Unapproved firewood brought to a state-administered campground will be confiscated and the transporter is subject to a $100 fine.

People camping on state forest lands outside of a designated campground may gather dead wood on the ground for campfire use on site. In state parks and designated campgrounds in state forests, people are prohibited from scavenging dead wood.
