What to do with ash wood

Asked May 5, 2019, 10:35 AM EDT

We have a dying ash tree that Lewis Tree Service is about to cut down for BG and E (it is right next to some electric lines). They will remove the brush, but will leave the rest of the wood, cut into lengths for firewood. We would like to give the firewood away on Craigslist. Is there a problem with this?

You can sell the ash within Maryland, but there is a quarantine for Pennsylvania. You cannot ship ash there. We would recommend that you not ship over state lines. Many foreign invasive pests have been spread by selling on Craigslist.
