State Heating Help: Firewood In Publicly Managed Forests

If you heat your home with wood, you can collect it in publicly managed forests this weekend.

Usually the state requires $20 for a 90-day permit that’s good between April and end of December.

But the state will not require a permit through Sunday to help people deal with the extreme cold.

There are rules for collecting, which you can find at michigan.gov/dnr.
