ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation is accepting bids from homeowners to cut firewood on state forests in Chenango and Madison counties.

The trees available for cutting are marked by DEC foresters to ensure that the only wood removed is done for conservation and habitat reasons. Removal of marked trees improves forest health and the growing stock of understory trees and vegetation.

Firewood will be available in volumes of three, five and 10 standard cords with a minimum bid of $20 per cord. A standard cord is a pile of wood measuring 4 feet high, 4 feet deep and 4 feet long.

Information about firewood sales is available on DEC’s website (https://bit.ly/1iGQ88x ).
