Sometimes, even the experts at Dear Don't Move Firewood don't have all the answers. Here's our latest inquiry, with a guest answer from Tim Phelps at the Tennessee Division of Forestry.

Dear Don't Move Firewood,


Would you be able to advise me as to whether the “Don't Move Firewood Campaign” applies to construction lumber, i.e., softwood that has no bark and been processed through a lumber mill?  Since there is no bark, it would seem that transporting scrap construction lumber would not pose any risk. Many thanks for your help.

Two notes came in recently, bringing about another episode of your favorite advice column...


Dear Don't Move Firewood;



I have quite a pile of treated lumber from a fence that we took down. This is not cut/split wood... is it safe to bring to a campsite and use as firewood?
