Am I allowed to transport plants across the state line, and into Oregon?

Asked by chad (694 points ) June 20th, 2008

I understand that traveling into California, plants will be confiscated upon crossing, and so I was wondering if this will also happen if crossing into Oregon. Thanks!

They don’t check. The checkpoint is only for when you go from Oregon to California.

I live in Oregon and cross back and forth often.

Within states is fine, but international you aren’t allowed to.

I had no idea that they even checked what other states were bringing in.

I was thinking a out bringing a hedgehog into California from Oregon.

I wonder if this will be possible to hide.

California does it to protect their huge agricultural economy. We have had past episodes of mass spraying and it’s not fun. Since we feed a lot of the world, it’s important.

Many states monitor and regulate agricultural imports.

@Spargett
The check is painless. It would be super easy to hide a pet. I’m not sure that you would even need to. I don’t think that they check for them. As far as I know it is only fruits and veggies and plants that they care about.

The only time that they ever did anything more than ask was when we had a truck from U-Haul. They wanted to look inside the back of the truck.

They are, however, illegal in CA, and if discovered will be ceased and either moved out of state or destroyed.
