ANF Says Get Firewood Locally Or Go To Jail

WFRM
With the start of camping season, officials at the Allegheny National Forest are reminding visitors there is a current closure order prohibiting the use of any firewood in the forest unless it originated in Elk, Forest, McKean or Warren Counties or has been kiln-dried.

Anyone who knowingly moves firewood from quarantine areas can be fined up to $4,000 or be sent to jail.

The closure is in place to help prevent the spread of dangerous beetles which have been discovered as far north as Pittsburgh and in Eastern Ohio. The trees in the national forest have no natural defenses against them and the forest could be devastated by an invasion.
