The crawling kind, that is...

"There's nothing like a fire blazing in the fireplace on a cold winter evening. The beauty, the warmth the insects waiting to damage or destroy trees in your lovely landscaped yard and your favorite park. To avoid that last one, The Nature Conservancy in Tennessee says don't buy firewood from outside the area where you live. A variety of insects and other pests infesting and devastating trees in other areas could be brought into your community.
More than 50 miles away is far enough to be a danger."

Does anyone actually go more than 50 miles for firewood?

While I'm sure someone would drive 50 miles for free firewood, I would think it is more likely that you'd buy firewood from a vendor who harvested it 50+ miles away. I see people selling firewood on the side of the road fairly often...who knows where they've come from. Or some small markets will have firewood for sale...again could come from out of state.
