Question Why can't I bring my own firewood to campgrounds for use?

Answer New York's forests are under attack from numerous invasive exotic insect pests. One common way many of these insect pests are moved around the state and country is on firewood carried by campers, hunters and other users of our forests. Use local firewood instead.
