DNR offering fuelwood permits online
MARQUETTE, MI— Michigan residents can now purchase fuelwood permits for state forest land online.
The Department of Natural Resources says the new option—which starts Friday—will save everyone time and energy.
Fuelwood permits are for use on designated state forest land in the Upper Peninsula and the northern Lower Peninsula. They allow for collection of up to five standard cords of wood per household. A standard cord is a stack measuring four feet wide, four feet tall, and eight feet long.
Wood is for personal use only and cannot be resold or traded. The trees must be dead and down within 200 feet of a road. No off-road use of vehicles is permitted to gather wood.
