Selling Firewood when there is a Ban!

Social, economic and environmental issues in our ever-changing world.

I'd suggest it's a bit irresponsible to advertise you're selling campfire wood when it's completely dangerous and irresponsible to burn it - regardless what the law says. People in here comparing it to other laws... it's not about the law, it's about misleading people into thinking it's okay to burn it. The same who are dumb enough to have a fire right now are the same to see a sign like that and think it's all kosher. Nobody is buying wood to heat their homes from the gas station....

Was that wood stove for cooking or for heat. If for heat, how high up in back country were you.
