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

2016 Bid Forms and Maps Now Available

General Information

The firewood bid program is now open 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. Forests participating in the program this year, as well as maps, rules and bid forms are listed below.

Each person who bids on firewood must read and comply with the following two documents:
