How do you keep firewood dry when camping?
A simple way to do this is just to keep your wood wrapped up in a tarp. If you want you can also put it on top of rocks. Or some wood pallets. If you have space in your vehicle, then you could be stored in the vehicle as well until you’re ready for its use.
Do you bring your own firewood when camping?
When you bring firewood camping, you risk carrying a tree killing insects or diseases right along with you. The bugs can crawl out, spread to the trees and forest at the campground or state or national park, and begin to destroy those trees and forests. Don’t bring firewood from home to your campsite.
Can I cut trees while camping?
If you are camping in a national forest you are allowed to burn branches and logs that you see lying around as long as you use them at your campsite. You can use an axe or even a chainsaw to cut the wood, but don’t take any with you out of your campsite. Oftentimes dead and down trees are marked for wildlife.
How far is too far to transport firewood?
As a very general rule of thumb, 50 miles is too far, and 10 miles or less is best. Visit our Firewood map to help you figure out how far is too far in your area. In many states there are rules, regulations, and quarantines that clearly state how far is too far.
Should you cover firewood with a tarp?
Properly seasoned firewood has a moisture content of less than 20%. Wood loses nothing else of consequence during seasoning; just water. Leave wood stacks for at least 6 months while the wood cures. Cover the wood stacks with a tarp or shelter to prevent rain from soiling wood.
Is it OK to stack firewood next to House?
ANSWER: Firewood storage attracts a number of pests including termites, other insects, and rodents. When you put firewood next to a building foundation, it’s like leaving their favorite food right outside your door. I recommend that you keep any firewood at least five feet or more away from the foundation.

Should you cover firewood in summer?
A tarp or another similar cover should be loosely kept over the firewood, but should not be tightly wrapped around it or extended all the way to the ground. The idea is to protect the firewood from direct moisture and the weather elements, while still allowing proper air circulation.
Will firewood dry in a pile?
Yes, firewood can indeed dry, season or in short, get ready for burning even if you throw it all randomly in a pile. That buried firewood can even start to rot, develop fungus or dry very little at all.
How do you start a campfire?
Start by sticking a long piece of kindling into the ground above your tinder at about a 30-degree angle, with the other end of the stick pointing into the wind. Then lean smaller pieces of kindling against both sides of the longer piece to build a tent. As the kindling catches fire add more, followed by your firewood.
What is certified heat treated firewood?
