Shenandoah National Park to Ban Outside Firewood

The Emerald Ash Borer is responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of ash trees in the U.S. and is spread by the movement of infested firewood. Beginning March 1, 2010, persons entering Shenandoah National Park (SNP) may not bring firewood or wood scraps. Visitors must gather or purchase firewood within the park.
