Community Opportunity to Collect Wood Rounds through a $25 Permit

The National Park Service is offering an opportunity to community members to collect wood rounds piled in a pre-designated area with value as firewood or for other uses. A limited number of households (approximately 15) who reside within a 50-mile drive of Otter Creek, Maine will be allowed to gather this wood. This wood is mixed soft and hard, in piles of un-split, limbed rounds of 16”-20” diameter. Wood permits costing $25 will be issued for the collection of this pre-gathered wood with a maximum of two cords. These wood rounds were created when winter tree cutting occurred in the park to clear historic scenic vistas along roadways. The most feasible use of these wood rounds is to be offered to residents living close enough to limit the potential spread of invasive pests or diseases beyond the local area.
