You’re not supposed to bring untreated firewood into New Hampshire or Maine, because such transport has proven to be a major route for invasive, tree-destroying insects to infect areas.

Now Vermont wants to join suit, with a proposed rule that would ban all firewood from being brought into the state.

Such quarantines are a pain if you have an RV or a cabin in the woods, because buying firewood on site is pretty expensive – it’s usually easier to just bring your own. But the damage caused by accidentally importing something like the Asian longhorned beetle is so vast that it’s a justifiable pain.
