Bringing in camp firewood from a different state

Can we bring hardwood firewood into ID from WI for camp firewood?

Answer: 

We manage fish and wildlife, but we also support Idaho State Department of Agriculture who lead our state's fight against invasive species.

Now to your question.  Yes, you can legally bring firewood from Wisconson to Idaho for your campfire, however, we prefer you didn't.  Transported with firewood could be are a host of invasive insects that damage forests in Idaho or noxious weed seed that could contaminate our rangelands.  To be safe, we recommend you leave your firewood in Wisconson and buy or cut the firewood you need in Idaho, locally.  Most hardward stores in Idaho stock firewood or can point you to sources that are inexpensive - or in some, cases, free.

Think of the gas you'll save by not transporting the extra weight all those hundreds of miles.
