It is always a bad idea to move uncertified firewood, because of the risk of carrying insect pests and tree diseases to new areas, but it is generally legal to move firewood.
However, it is illegal to move uncertified firewood in these cases:
If you live in a county that has been quarantined because emerald ash borer, gypsy moth, or both have been found there, you cannot move firewood to a county that is not quarantined – even if you are taking it to property that you own.

It is always legal to move DATCP-certified firewood. It is clearly labeled, and is available at many retail locations or directly from firewood dealers.
