You won't have to drive very far around the lake before seeing signs offering camp wood for sale. Yes, it might be a little pricy compared to the truckload you bought back home, but the important point is, it's native. The People Who Know These Things tell us that importing firewood is a great way to transport highly destructive tree diseases and insects. You want to come to the North Woods to escape the crush of civilization, don't you? How would you feel knowing that the woods are gone, because you brought in one of these pests?

 

Besides, how much wood are you going to use, and how much money are you really saving (especially when you consider the cost of gas to transport that extra weight)? Do yourselves and us a favor, and get your wood where you're going to use it. That applies at home, too, not just at Panther Pond. Help stop the spread of tree death - if you get your firewood at home, burn it at home, don't carry it around with you. Thank you.

 

The State of Maine has recently adopted legislation to make it illegal to import firewood, for the reasons stated above.
