Mauch Chunk Lake Park

General Firewood Quarantine 


Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has enacted a quarantine order for untreated firewood of any kind coming into the state. Any firewood brought into the state must be kiln dried, heat treated, fumigated, and/or USDA Certified.

To protect the high quality and native character of our State Parks from exotic invasive species DCNR highly encourages all visitors to:

• Burn/buy locally cut firewood (within 25 miles)

• BURN ALL firewood brought from another area. Do not leave it. Do not take it with you.

• Encourage friends and neighbors not to move firewood

Do not remove firewood from a Spotted Lanternfly Quarantine Area. Contact the PA Department of Agriculture, and search on the keyword Spotted Lantern Fly for current quarantine information.
