Shameless plug for SPA board member Timbo, who sells firewood and lives in Palmdale off the 14

Thanks, emjay. Sounds good. Is it safe to cook over such a fire or are there additives?

I usually try to buy my firewood along the 395 somewhere. Does anyone have a good source along the 395/14 that has a good price on firewood?

The Park has asked SPA to pass this information along, as folks have been inquiring about the need to burn local wood as a means of preventing pest spread.
Due to the ecology of Saline Valley, Death Valley National Park does not have a regulation on bug-free firewood. Users should bring their own firewood as wood gathering is not permitted within the park boundary.
Many parks and forests do have bug-free regulations due to the possible transportation and introduction of forest pests and diseases. If anyone is interested the State of CA has a "burn it where you buy it" program. See
." Additionally, some parks do not allow camp fires at all. It is always a good idea to check out local regulations before traveling. http://www.firewood.ca.gov/index.html
