Restriction on bringing wood into NH

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

We are not supposed to bring wood into New Hampshire because of some Asian beetle that likes the Maple trees up here.  I want to buy some chunk wood from the internet but don't want to be inadvertently bringing bad things into the state.  Has anyone had problems with bugs in the wood bought on the internet?  Is there anyway to ensure the wood is bug free?

Hello.  MY guess would be that if a company is sellin on the net they MUST or SHOULD be environmentally aware of such dangers.  E-mail the folks and ask them what precautions they take.  Good luck.  Keep Smokin!

I think that is in reference to bringing in firewood, local firewood is ok.

The emerald ash borer is a devastating nasty bug, so I respect the firewood rule.

I applaud the Emerald Ash Borer, I Hate Ash trees.

Louisviille Slugger uses a lot of Ash. Ash bats are more flexible and have a larger sweet spot.

VERY true Bearcarver.  Remember the old days when you heard the "CRACK" of a good wooden bat?  Now all you hear is a puny "dink" from aluminium.  Miss that crack.  Sorry for the Hi-Jack.  I'll shut up now.  Keep Smokin!

Absolutely!!! The feel of wood & the solid hit on wood is so much better IMO too.

 

I coached Connie Mack (13 to 16 year olds) for 28 years, and I'm glad it was all wood then!!!

 

I too am sorry for the side-track!!!

Any bagged, chunked or chipped hardwoods intended for smoking that I have came across so far have been kiln dried. The kiln kills any existing bugs, and without any moisture left in the grain, no "new" bugs will infest it. I would order with confidence!
