State Parks and Forests Participate in State Program

January 23, 2008 (rt23 news) - This program was established to improve forest health and to provide products to both the Division of Parks and Forestry and to local businesses as well as to provide fuel wood for homeowners and recreational opportunities for all.

The Commercial Firewood Program is designed to accomplish desired forestry work and to exchange firewood for cutting rights on Division lands. A portion is returned to the Division of Parks and Forestry and sold to campers at a nominal fee, thus eliminating costs of firewood production for the Division. The woodcutter then utilizes the remaining trees according to the best economical return depending upon the current local markets.

Through the Homeowner Firewood Program, the Division of Parks and Forestry opens up state land to individuals interested in cutting firewood for personal use. New Jersey residents have the opportunity to cut firewood at any of six participating state parks and forests for $20 a cord while supplies last.

The public can cut up to a maximum of five cords of standing timber. Homeowners are responsible for cutting in designated areas and removing their own firewood. Advance reservations are required and can be made for any two consecutive days. Commercial resale of the wood is not permitted.

The Homeowner’s Firewood Program has been sponsored by the state since 1973. Read more about the benefits of homeowner firewood.
