New Firewood Policy – Effective June 1, 2016 - DON’T MOVE FIREWOOD
In order to protect our forests and trees from invasive insects and diseases, Tennessee State Parks asks that ALL campfires be made with heat-treated wood or downed wood collected inside the park, near the campsite. Please refrain from bringing untreated wood into the park.
Certified heat-treated wood is available to purchase from concessioners in many of the campgrounds as well as from vendors in the communities around the park. Certified heat-treated wood is clearly marked with a state/federal seal.
The Emerald Ash Borer and other invasive pests are a growing threat to the forests of Tennessee and the surrounding region.
