I have never had an issue with any ranger questioning me about where my wood came from. I believe they probably have much more important things to do.
TitanMike there is a mill like you describe 25 miles from me that used to load your truck for free with the cuts as you describe. All hardwoods, mostly oak. that got ruined by some folks who lived on the highway the mill is on selling bundles of wood on the roadside. Sorta PO'd the mill. So last I heard they would still fill your truck but started charging a nominal fee like $5-$10 per load. A good friend of mine remolded his kitchen and great room with a 20 ft. vaulted ceiling with the scrap woodcuts. Absolutely beautiful! I go to new housing developments about 3 miles from my house and pick up the scrap cut-offs from the pile assembled on what will be the front yards. I'll find perfectly good 2x4's with one bent nail in them tossed on the pile. A couple of loads in my SUV with give most of the wood I will use for a camping season.
apparently you have never had a problem with ant's or insect's of any kind in your camper?
people do every thing differently Sherm 12
some people load wood in the side compartment in the camper some put it in the truck bed..
if its in one or the other YOUR carrying insects right in that wood right..
kiln dryed wood is not so much a problem!!!
it transfering the wood that is not processed !!!!
aparintly you do not read the signs at the boat ramps eather it clearly says
clean you boat scale of any water born snales an what not...
becouse you will transfer that to another pond !!!
Get it just like people transfering wood from another state get it...
people do things differently it would take a year and a month if you dont get the eco system or simply dont believe it..
in the old days we poured motor oil on dirt drive ways to pack it down or keep the dust down..
now we have people pouring motor on camp fires
And And people bring wood from other states
you aparently have never seen what these beatles can do to a forest..
my ash trees are dying as we speak becouse of the spread of these insects and mites beetles and so on an so forth..
my neighbor is a hick Nyer he pokes funn at me make-believe crying about all the polushion in the world THEN THEN he takes all his house hold garbage including oil cans plastic mindyou bed sprinds you name it and has a bond fire..
just one exzample of how ignorant some people can be.....
ANY WOOD that is not processed and comes from a nother state is in fact transfering some kind of insect to that state ....Okeeeeeee
