Don't transport firewood.
It’s really that simple: don't move firewood, and keep trees healthy and alive.
Oregon has new firewood regulation and rules to protect the state from insects and pests that hitchhike on firewood. The law makes it illegal to import or transport firewood within Oregon unless that wood is sourced from Oregon, Washington, or Idaho, or unless the wood has been heat treated according to standards described by the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
The Pests We are Concerned About
Let's keep them out of Oregon!
Firewood, brush, and debris from your property pose no threat if you don't move it very far. Composting, chipping, burning, or transporting it to a local disposal facility are acceptable ways of dealing with wood waste on your property. Moving firewood material long distances increases the risk.
