Firewood Alert

Dale Hollow Lake is included as a firewood quarantine area.  When camping or picnicking at Dale Hollow Lake, purchase your firewood from a vendor who sells certified heat-treated firewood. Don't bring firewood from home. To help prevent the spread of the Emerald ash borer and other forest pests, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is prohibiting firewood that is non certified heat-treated firewood. The policy can be viewed from our main website or at Dontmovefirewood.org under the listings for the state of Tennessee.
