Firewood Sales on State Forests in Region 7/Central New York

2015 Bid Forms and Maps Now Available

General Information

The firewood lottery program is closed for the season. Please check back next spring for the 2016 season.

Periodically the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation accepts bids from homeowners to cut firewood on state forests in Central New York. The specific forests and areas within the forests that participate in this program vary from year-to-year. Due to the increased demand for firewood, sales are only offered through a sealed bid auction and not by lottery. There is no need to sign up in advance to participate in the bid process. Announcements, bid sheets and related information are linked from this page when the program is active and accepting bid applications. If the firewood auction is active in any given year, it will occur in the spring, with cutting of wood being done by successful bidders over the summer.
