The Atlantic County Homeowners Firewood Program is a good way to get the firewood you need to stay warm this winter inexpensively from designated county parks.

The program, which began October 1 and continues through March 31, 2016, offers a firewood permit for $25 per vehicle load, with a 1-2 load maximum, depending on vehicle size.

Cutting areas will be assigned after obtaining your permit. Only dead, fallen trees may be harvested.

Firewood permit applications are available at the Lake Lenape Boathouse, 6303 Old Harding Highway in Mays Landing and at the Estell Manor Park Nature Center, 109 Rt. 50 in Mays Landing.
